Whether you're moved by this museum depends, I suppose, on your attitude to the Jewish people and to Israel. It certainly and understandably has a Jewish perspective. It tells the story of the Palmach which ultimately became the Israeli Defence Forces. The museum experience is quite different to anything I had experienced before, using original movie clips, actors, narration -... More

Visiting the museum is designed only for groups, so contact them in advance. Also discuss what language you want, because they give the tours in several different languages. It's underground and the group walks from room to room, with displays and video telling the story of the founding of the Palmach during the British Mandate before the declaration of the... More

The Palmach was a fighting force involved in defending Israel prior to its War of Independence and played a major role in the survival of the nascent state. The museum has an archive of pictures that capture the history of this fighting force. Downside is that almost all albums are primarily involved in Hebrew. The tour of the museum, which... More

My husband and I really enjoyed a tour of this museum. It is unlike any that I have ever been to. It is interactive, informative and very original in its presentation.

This interactive museum built underground affords the visitor an experience of the foundings of the State of Israel and how the young people managed to protect their convictions. Excellently done. Can be visited in various languages as one walks through with earphones to hear what is screened in the various halls.
