Great experience. Wonderful presentation. Highly recommended.
How Israel from its founding fathers, until today including the hard en dark ages.
Surprised how Christians in the last century have treated the Jews and how they have empowered the rise of the nation in contradiction to the Middle Ages.

It is an excellent museum, I learned so much and was also a reminder that we as jews are not alone and that there are people that care about others.
Daniel our guide, was so nice and knowledgeable.
It is so modern, it is interactive and I left with a smile on my face and hope in humanity.

The visuals, history and technology were phenomenal.

Wonderful guides. We were given a drink as your was 5 minutes late.

Spotless and fascinating way of imparting the message.

We were each given a magnet as a gift on departure.

Thank you very much

Cannot recommend enough.

Not really a museum, but kind of a high-tech educational experience. Highly recommend this attraction to learn a little about the history of Israel and some surprising supporters of the nation.

This is new, it was my first time here. It is super high tech, had some electronic displays i had never seen before. I learned a lot, and I already know a lot about Israel. Very nice gift shop too, loved the harp key chains. My only suggestion is that they have more on the friends of Zion since Independence.

Even for a Jewish Israeli person like me, who is very familiar with the history of the Israel, Jewish people and of course the holocaust, I learned new things, mainly about Christians who supported Israel and the Jewish people through our the last 100-150 years.
This is a very modern museum with very nice technological appliances. Nice experience.
Please notice - this is NOT a museum which describes the Israel history nor the Jewish people history, this is basically about great none-Jewish people who helped Jewish people... some of them are true "Righteous among the Nations"
There is quite (too much...) pathos in the air but - it worth a visit.

Our friends told us to make sure we visit this museum. Luckily for us it was less than a 5 minute walk from our apartment. My mom, sister and I were led by an English speaking guide through all the different rooms and floors. I must say that this is one of the best museums I have visited as it used videos, 3D technology hologram-like presentations to narrate and show the stories of different people who have helped Israel throughout the years. It is an emotional journey as you literally see through the eyes and step in the shoes of these people. You also get to experience history up close. Wish they included Manuel L. Quezon there. He opened the Philippines to more than 1,200 European Jews escaping the Nazis in WW2. The last part of the tour is a surprise which you will surely bring home with you. Make sure you check the website for museum hours and rates (22 to 44 shekels per person, varies if you're a student, senior citizen, etc.).

I did not like this museum. It was interesting as you are going through it but as one began to absorb it you felt like it was propaganda and not true to history. There was a narrative they wanted to impart and then took facts to force them into their story. For instance, Oskar Schindler did amazing work saving Jews but he didn't do it to pursue Zionism.
