  • Hard to imagine that we had not been to Ammunition Hill in years. Truly a meaningful and inspiring visit! 
  • A place that is not essential in itself, but this interest for the amateur of contemporary history to wonder about conflicts, ancestral hatred, etc.

  • Amazing place, if your tour guide doesn't play the famous song, the one about the soldiers there in battle, s/he's doing it wrong ;)
  • For persons who wants to pay respect to our military heroes a must visit site. A tremendous way in honouring our Fallen. Minimum time required to cover all ground 45 mins
  • While visiting Ammunition Hill, the site of crucial battles during the I1948 and 1967 wars, I chanced upon a reunion of Israeli veterans of the latter. I was graciously invited to remain and mingle. They were my contemporaries, i.e., older, and not terribly formidable-looking but I saw only giants. I've read the histories; I'm honored to know one of them personally. After the battle, one of their Jordanian adversaries described them as "mujhadin" - their highest accolade. Kol Hakavod.
  • Fantastic museum. With a good guide, it has the potential to be an incredible experience
  • A must for one that what's to understand what really happened during the battle for Jerusalem.
