  • On Wednesday 28-2-2018 at approximately 14.00 arrived for a visit on the website including the desire to see the exhibition [קק'ל photography], who works at the local reception was on the phone long [over 10 minutes] and opened up to us only after we decided to move and we woke her, she must leave the phone and while chewing a sandwich announced: 1] The Museum is closed for צה'ל unit 2 activity] because it is not possible to visit the exhibition contain the same day 3] the only way to visit this site + accompanying film can be seen in Hebrew or English [Hebrew-language iosert at 16.00] decided not to and come back later we went out to eat, when we returned to the site in 15.00 o'clock her receptionist sitting at the counter informed us that the movie will be in English instead of Hebrew [as opposed to information reported an hour earlier], since we didn't order the screening in Hebrew – it should be noted that no point in the conversation are not advised us that we should invite film screening and considers the visit instead.

  • It's very strategic place to fulfil reunification of Jerusalem. Tehilim 45:17" I will make thy name to be remembered in all generations : therefore shall the people praise thee for ever and ever. " for 164 sacrificial life in that battle. So " This shall be written for the generation to come : and the people which shall be created shall praise the Lord. " (tehilim 102:18)
  • 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. In Northeast Jerusalem
