  • 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.

  • Great movie, fabulous photography exhibit. Great markings to understand the significance of the area.
  • Fascinating place & story about one of the harshest battle of the six day war. Very recommended.
  • Lots to learn about and see. The new additions to the museum make it worth another visit if you haven't been for a while.
  • Dedicated staff. Excellent presentation of history.
