“A display of history in a very engaging way”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

This museum tells the history of the Palmach through the stories of its members. As you walk from room to room, you are presented with vignettes that take you through the formation of this special force, training of a group of new recruits, and their roles in events that took place during much of the 1940's.

Be aware that this museum that in order to visit this museum, you must make arrangements in advance.

“Don't miss this one”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

Amazing insight into the Palmach, very well done and very moving. You follow a group of young Israelis through their journey, culminating in the Israeli war of independence. Suitable for all ages.

“An excellent museum”
Reviewed January 4, 2014 via mobile

We were recommended this museum by friends and were not disappointed. It works through guided tours which MUST be pre booked in advance. The tour was highly informative and I found it a very emotional experience. You follow a group of young Palmachs from the start of the organisation to its end. You become entwined in the lives of the people as you move from room to room. I would highly recommend this museum.

This museum really gives you an authentic recreation of what it was like to be a member of the Palmach. Highly recommended for high schoolers and up.
