  • A must for everyone who can arrange for a guided visit. You should register in advance to join a group visit but you may also just go ad-hoc and hope to join a group who may have some space left (just make sure you somewhat understand the language of the tour guide). The museum immerses you fully into Israel's pioneer past and is also technically just great!!!
  • Great place to leran about the Palmach: The Israeli Special Forces, before the foundation of Israel. Discover how they combined work with war and education, to enshore the ability to create the state of Israel.
  • Amazing. Must visit for all Israelis (even more so - kids), and Zionist Jews. Unique interactive experience walks you through the experience of joining the "Palmach". You will feel you're part of the team. The newer exhibition regarding holocaust survivors fighting in Israel's independence war is also very recommended.
  • Amazing! The best museum in Israel... I was crying there... Heroes of Israel are touching you. Its so emotional!
  • Best moseum in tlv! A must go museum!
