  • This was my second tour of the museum and was every bit as good as the first. If you want to understand how the IDF came into existence and why this is the tour for you.  more »
  • I got here late and a lovely young person gave me a quick but thorough look at the museum. To think of what lives made up this country. I am awed and humbled by it all. Very definitely a place to visi...  more »
  • Our guide suggested that we see the presentation and it is a must see. The Israeli fight for independence and how the people sustained their independence is clearly outlined in the 1.5 hour production...  more »

  • Provides a good deal of info on the Palmach, and the format is somewhat unique but to the extent that it takes awat a little from the message... I still can't figure you why the last room has a rotating floor... Aside from that, be sure not to miss the photo collection in the opposite building after your tour.
  • This underground museum is a great interactive museum about pre-State Israel's underground.
  • We didnt reserver upfront, but when we ask the cashier we could join 2 and half hours later. We then go first to Eretz Israel museum(5min walk) and after that joined the tour trough Palmach museum. We definitely liked it!
  • Really cool museum, very informative, walk through a series of films projected on the walls.
  • Amazing museum that uses technology to teach you in a really spectacular way. Has both English and Hebrew.
