  • What an incredible and moving experience! The museum truly gives you a glimpse into the life oh the Palmach, I highly recommend you visit! If you have time go to the photo gallery room to see an incredible collection! Definitely leave time for this....
  • A very interesting and touching tribute to the Palmach and the history of Israel. This is a "must see" IMO. Call or email ahead to make sure that there is a tour available in English when you plan to visit if that is your preference.
  • Detailed history of how IDF was started. How Israel was won. Very well done with visuals story like. Clean.
  • Amazing EXPERIENCE (not just a museum) that takes you through the history of the Palmach as if you were there yourself. You leave with a better understanding of the founding of the State of Israel and War of Independence and a personal connection with history.
  • It's very interesting, the Musium is showing you the information with movie and technology, which is very on point but in my opinion it's missing some inform.
