  • I'm not a huge fan of battlefields, but our guide's stories about the 67 war combined with the trenches made this a memorable visit. There are tanks you can climb on and a film.  more »
  • As noted in another review, this museum is with a guide and should be reserved ahead of time. We did not know this, but they were able to accommodate us anyway. It was very interesting, very moving. O...  more »
  • Small battlefield. Nice audio visual model and film. They will not let you into the museum without a guide. I arrived at 10am and the next guide was 2pm. Be warned.  more »

  • This place is a place which I always catch the bus to Ma aAle Adumim and a train in Jerusalem to both directions. It very interesting sight and very opened space.so I love it.
  • Great Israeli war museum. Site of 1967 Battle for Ammunition Hill. Old tanks and army jeeps for kids to climb on and play in. The most professional staff of any Federal site I've been to.
  • Good seeing how the IDF overcame the Jordanian army to take control of Jerusalem in 1967.
  • Redesigned museum isn't yet open, thus the guiding is very important. Memorial building is sobering. It reminds one of the Israeli army's makeup: more than half of those killed in the battles were reserve and the others were ... kids. Could be part of a tour of 4 - 5 days in Jerusalem.

  • Location of the one of the fiercest battles of the 1967 war. Climb atop the bunkers, relive the heroism of those brave soldiers. Best to go with a guide.

Where to stay in Jerusalem

Although it lacks a big selection of mid-range options, Jerusalem provides plenty of choices in the top-end hotel category. The Old City contains the bulk of Jerusalem's small hotels, inexpensive hostels, and religious hospices, all of which appeal to budget-conscious travelers. West Jerusalem offers additional options in the form of guesthouses and bigger hotels, some of which boast five-star ratings. If you just need a bed, consider a youth hostel, where you can choose between private and common rooms with Wi-Fi included.
