  • Honor, hour. And this museum is in honor to all fighters who have defended and have fallen in the defense of the State of Israel. It is fascinating to observe how have preserved all these teams and military armaments and that remain in the memory of future generations. It is an account of the wars fought by Israel, equipment and weapons that the enemy, etc. have captured him

  • Those who love history, this museum can satisfy curiosity hardly found elsewhere. A bit dated in the facilities, however, is satisfactory in content. Besides are very interesting descriptions of recent war operations as well as the life and history of successive defence ministers since the founding of the State of Israel. Great collections of guns: thousands of specimens from all over the world!

  • The most interesting are the tank and the rifle collection. Many equipments are in poor shape. Most of the descriptions are in Hebrew. The visitor should be well acquainted with Israeli history to fully grasp the contents of the exhibit.
  • A must visit to experience what the IDF has gone through the past 70+ years. No pressure schedule. Spent 3 hours here. Very well planned and informative. Worth every cent. Family of 4 around $15 USD or $50 shekel. Wish they sold some T-shirts or something. Would have loved an IDF souvenir after the tour.
  • Large Museum, a complete history of the IDF. A lot of the displays are outside, tanks, artillary, armored cars etc.
  • A bit scattered, but a nice overview to IDF history.
  • 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
