Some miles outside of Beersheba the museum is set in spacious grounds making it possible to view the aircraft from every angle.Explanations were clear and in almost every case in English as well as Hebrew. Inevitably security was strong but highly efficient and in no way obtrusive. A very good aerial presentation of a young country with an unashamed pride inits armed forces. Well worth a visit.

My travel group visited the Israel Air Force museum in November 2017. There's no glitz, the planes are parked outside in rows with explanatory signs in front of them, but it's thrilling to see the history of Israel's famed air force in one place. We were shown around by a young air force woman soldier, who was quite informative. The types of planes go all the way from old biplanes and piper cubs to Israel's own super-fighter Lavi which was never put into production due to costs and US pressure, to two Soviet MIG fighters, one whose Arab pilot defected and the other whose Arab pilot landed in Israel by mistake. You can enter an old El Al 707 commercial jet to view films about the IAF. As noted by others, local buses stop right at the door. And the best bonus is that the museum is near the Hatzerim air force base, and you watch F-15 and F-16 and other aircraft screaming into the sky or coming in for a landing.

We went to visit with little kids, so bring a stroller for those that can't walk a lot. Great for those who love history, only a few planes for the kids to climb in. Our kids only lasted about an hour. But it was very interesting to look around and read the signs about all the old planes. The planes were all OLD, no joke that this is the Israel Air force grave yard! Still interesting though if you are near Ber Sheva.

We all really enjoyed learning about the history of the IAF with a very knowledgeable and interesting tour guide. She told us anecdotes and facts about the planes and. Their pilots and really brought the experience to life. We learned loads and came away very impressed.
