  • Israeli army calls the greatest respect and admiration. So we decided to take a peek at this museum. So much so that it is conveniently located: near the beaches and on the road from Jaffa to Tel Aviv. The exposition is interesting enough, many Russian tanks:)) extracted from the Arabs. It is best to take an audio-guide, so much so that it is in both Russian and English. Walk yourself well, too, but I didn't have enough information in multiple places (sometimes only in Hebrew). Well and good, it should be an hour and a half to a careful visit. Of course, not everyone will be interested. Focus more on weapons and equipment, while I am more interested in the story, frankly) Amused that at the entrance checked no bags, but only a passport, including blue liner.
