  • Teaches dug by Jordan are still there, and you can walk through them. Fab views over Jerusalem. The hand to hand battles won here by the Israelis helped to capture the city. This is a must visit site....  more »
  • ביקרנו במקום עם כל הילדים והנכדים. הם נהנו מהטיול בתוך החושות, בבונקרים ומחרכי הירי. במידה וזה לא מפריע למבקרים הנוספים - ממליצה להביא רובי מים. גם הטיפוס על הטנקים היווה אטקרציה. המקום לא מטופח מי יו...  more »

  • 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.
