Palmach Museum commemorates the role of the Palmach, the elite combat force of the "Haganah," the underground army of the Jewish residents of the British Mandate in Palestine before the establishment of the state of Israel. 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. Visitors must arrange in advance to join one of the group tours through the museum, which are offered in multiple languages and last 90 minutes.

  • 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.
  • Best moseum in tlv! A must go museum!
  • This is significantly different to any other museum experience in Israel. The Palmach story is told though extensive dioramas, animated through lighting, film and other theatrical effects. Without wishing to give anything away, the story is told through the experience of ten young fighters, men and women, as they meet, train and enter active duty in the Palmach and later the fledgling IDF. Inspirational and genuinely touching.
  • a unique museum, unlike any other I have ever seen. The original architecture, the curatorship, the story told are magnificent. You visit it for its style, for its information, for the historical experience. I have no doubt that this museum and other similar institution related to the history of Israel are a significant part of the strength of the Jewish people, part of the miracle of the State of Israel. Deeply moving. Yaffa Schlesinger
