  • Israel Defense Forces History Museum Located in one of the most beautiful sites in Tel Aviv, the old train station complex of Tel Aviv, nostalgic lovers are encouraged to see the rebirth of the State of Israel through the history of the simple weapons through which the soldiers of Israel paid with their lives and heroism the existence of every citizen here , I dedicated a painting of this beautiful place to the station compound
  • It was amazing experience to visit here. I found my country's guns in this museum. I'm impressed!
  • Amazing history...great place to visit.
  • UGH, I'm seriously disappointed that I missed this, sadly, in favor of the shops beyond the entrance. We were on a limited time frame and I was unaware of this, looking at the pictures here and experiencing the grounds with the shops, it's a 5. It seems you could take the entire family. It is also the home of the first railroad in Israel, connecting Jaffa to Jerusalem, of course.
  • I love the Israel defense strategy and country because Israel is mother land of the My God Jesus Christ
