  • I enjoyed the museum. They had many vehicles and weapons from all 3 wars. I enjoyed looking at all the hardware. I've been to many military museums, but this one probably has the most armor I've seen.  more »

  • 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.
  • Nice museum. Lots of armored vehicles and weapons to see. Most is also writen in English! price is really cheap if a combined ticket/pass.
  • A deep and rich history of the IDF. Very informative and inspiring
  • Very informative, a place full of story
  • Its among the top security in the world
