Any person that wants to learn more about the teachings of Jabotinsky and the movements of the Revisionists should this Museum. See the exhibition and watch the presentation and also ist the Etzel Museum.

We arrived to see the irgun museum during official open hours but the museum was closed. The manager was on holiday and all the guides were on courses. During school holidays. The indifferent man at the entrance had no idea what was going on. Totally unreliable. Bad planning. Definitely call ahead before showing up.

We really liked this museum about the life of Jabotinsky and his followers and the freedom fighters. There are two movies, available in a variety of languages. My husband I were the only ones there and we had the whole place to ourselves. The basement movie was about Jabotinsky told thru a fictional conversation between him and his son after... More

If you don't know much about Jabotinsky, this museum is a good place to start. It mainly offers two movies, one an imagined conversation between Jabotinksy and his son, summarizing his life, as well as a movie about the clandestine attempts to bring Jewish immigrants to Palestine during the British Mandate when the British had closed the land to immigration....

Centerpiece of museum is two creative film exhibits. Both dial up the corniness, though -- one with a fictitious conversation between Jabotinsky and his son, after Jabotinsky's death; and the other with a fictionalized account of boats bringing Jews to Israel past the British blockade, made too long and too cheesy by a dumb love story. Both films are rather... More

independence is a very subjective political issue and I felt it throughout the visit. Happened to visit with a friends following a Lonely Planet rec he got, and I never visited before so it was a nice experience. The relevance to current day events is so powerful and interesting. Interactive experience, it was basically empty when we got there. But... More

This fascinating museum, focussing on the activities of the paramilitary Irgun group, makes for a difficult visit from a British perspective (rather as if one was visiting a museum glorifying the activities of the Provisional IRA). No doubt in a few decades time, Hamas will posess a similar shrine glorifying their violent independence struggle, and Israelis will feel uncomfortable visiting... More

This museum presents some interesting pieces of Israeli history. See the video exhibits! And make sure you see both parts of the museum, although it has two entrances. The Lonely Planet guide says it's free, but it's not anymore (not expensive, though).

If you want to really dig into the story of the struggle for the Jewish state and learn more about Zeev Jabotinsky, here's your chance. Remarkably, Israelis make every museum very interactive and you feel as a part of the process. Too sad I was the only one they had to switch on the whole exhibition for.

You get to see two movies - one about Jabotinksy and his ideas, the other about the "National Sport" - that is, the adventurous illegal immigration of Jews to Israel. The latter is very thrilling, since you are being drawn fully into the movie with 4D cinema. Unfortunately it is just a small museum with a little exhibition. Nevertheless it... More
