I liked the museum, but there wasn't much to see to be honest, the museum is tiny, and some of the exhibits shown are only in Hebrew (or only have an English label but the exhibit, like a letter is all in Hebrew), which made...More

Knowing virtually nothing about Israeli history, we happened across this museum and thought we'd give it a try. It took a lot of effort to even understand the basic history being presented, and we never were able to decipher many of the exhibits, especially the...More

I don't think I have ever visited a museum dedicated to celebrating terrorism; this was the most bizarre museum ever. Palestine has been expunged from history - I was totally shocked. Still on the plus side, it is by the beach which was lovely and...More

This is a small museum but it is packed with insightful videos and displays that enable the visitor to realize just how important the contribution of the Irgun was to the establishment of the state of Israel--something you otherwise are likely to miss by virtue...More
