    This museum to see original military parts of all arms of the State Hebrew since its inception until the early 2000s. Historical review to get a better idea of the resources deployed to counter the too many neighbouring enemies surrounding Israel but also, friendships and shared alliances. Found on the site (or huts), tanks d assault, machine guns, rifles and pistols, bullets and mortars d a share but also photos of presidents, diplomats and military high-calibre, submitted to vital decisions for l State of Israel, or even exposure of medals and certificates of bravery. The Museum, in the southern part of tel aviv, is very good. It is in the sector of "ha tahana" (Taranat means "station" in Hebrew), i.e., the restored site d one station of the time of the British mandate, steps from the cultural center Suzanne Dellal, or the Florentine neighborhood, or the ha shouk pichpichim of jaffa, or its old port, but also to the beaches of tel aviv and its cafés and restaurants.

    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.
