This museum is amazing! You will learn all about the early Zionist pioneers and understand the sacrifices they made in their back to their homeland. Incredible stories of courage and a will to make Israel and home once again for the Jewish people.

The building have a great history, the gem in it, is that in the basement floor you can dress up in 1800 clothes.

Provides the essential story of the first Aliyah but the museum itself is a bit dated and dingy. Needs an upgrade.
