We went to the Hagana Museum which has an interesting film in English and Hebrew about the development of the defence of Jewish Palestine against the opposition of the surrounding Arab countries and the British Balfour Mandate. Each of the three floors takes a period of about ten years and describes how the fledgling country developed its arms and defence... More

Very welcoming, well laid out, rich with history of and insight into the Hagana. I wish they had shared something about their tumultuous relationship with the Irgun, but still a great history lesson with intriguing displays and artifacts.

The museum was very useful in terms of explaining the early creation of Israel. The film they offer at the beginning is well worth watching, so if you have the time, you should see it. After going through the museum, I had a question about the Irgun and got a very good answer from one of the staff members --... More

The Haganah was the genesis of the Israeli army. It had to organize partially secretly under the Brits. This museum beautifully tells the story.

This house was where the beginnings of the Israeli military started. It starts with a 20 minute film and then about an hour to tour the museum. Very interesting and not ugly against the Palestinians. A good two hours spent.

We thoroughly enjoyed this museum, which was easy to follow and very informative. These young people trained each other to protect the young country of Israel prior to the formation of the Israeli Defence Force

This museum really captures the struggle to establish the State of Israel. For older people, it brings back memories of Zionist youth groups. This museum is a must for families with children - it tells a story that should not be forgotten.

We had bought a combined ticket at the Etezl Museum and decided to check this one out, as well. You need your passport to enter. My husband and I were the only two people in there pretty early in the morning other than a group of school children, so we had the place to ourselves and got to really focus... More

The home of one of the Hagana founders has been converted into a museum on three floors. It is well structured and organised, the exhibition beginning with a film about the origins of the organisation and its work to help migrants settle. Exhibits are well presented and supported by short explanations in English and Hebrew. The ground floor of the... More
