  • We went with the whole family to see and appreciate one of the more important battles in the Israeli history. Very interesting and everybody should visit. 
  • This was part of our tour package. Our guide explained how Israel took back the depot and the significance of the area. It was a good learning experience. 
  • 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.
  • 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
  • Fantastic museum. With a good guide, it has the potential to be an incredible experience
  • I read about the battle for Givat Hatachmoshet, so this was very moving for me. I felt the need to pay my respects to the paratroopers who gave their lives.
