Learn the history of the Jewish State and its hero. Make sure to get a guide book to provide details of the hero buried in this beautiful cemetery.

Very pleasant uphill walk connecting Yad Va Shem and the Hertzl Museum. Unfortunately no tours in English were available the day we visited the Hertzl museum.

The final resting place of Theodore Herzl who did not live to see his dream of the creation of a separate Jewish state, past presidents, prime ministers and other important leaders of Israel, is a fitting place to visit after Yad Vashem. There is also a military cemetery for all of the soldiers who fought bravely during the many wars... More

This is a quite large national cemetery honoring some of Israel's leaders as well as the war dead. It is divided into several distinct sections and it will take several hours to visit. It is a bit hilly so bring water when it's warm. The restrooms are not very convenient so keep that in mind.

There is a museum that is so exciting. It gives the history of Herzl. And the cemetery is full of tombs of young soldiers that gave their lives recently and in the past for the Land of Israel. It is best to go with a group that books it in advance. If not, I suggest you call to find out... More

It was very special to attend Herzl and Jabotinsky s grave sides. We noticed by jabotinskys grave side a masa group of about 60 kids holding a whole ceremony. Very beautiful place. The Herzl Meuseum was very good as well.
