The striking modern building was designed by Israeli architects Zvi Hecker and Rafi Segal, and contains the exhibit, laid out over several rooms in a display that integrates video, artifacts, and documents with personal narrative history.

  • 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.
  • 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!!!
