The worst thing was the audio guides, you don't/can't type in a number, instead they are supposed to automatically sense where you are and give information about the part you happen to be in. But, this means you can take one step and then the guide starts talking about something else, often the same track repeats itself or seems to start in the middle of a topic and not at the beginning. I don't know why they don't just have normal audio guides where you type in the number you want.
I was lucky as I seemed to be the only person in the museum when I visited, but I imagine it would be a nightmare if full of other people as if you can't get close to the info boards and every time you move to get around people the tracks would always change.
There are not many exhibits considering the size of the building....there's not much to look at considering in terms of artefacts, it is mainly information boards. There are nice large rooms that have excellent views over Tel Aviv, but the museum is not in this part and these rooms were empty.
The museum seems a bit badly organised, if you arrive from the direction of Tel Aviv (Rokach boulevard) the entrance is on the other side so you have to walk around the outside of the building (no signposts).
I stumbled by accident across the car Rabin was getting in when assassinated, it is randomly in the car park, but there is no real sign to it and could easily have been missed.
Some of the information online about opening times/reservations doesn't seem accurate. On their website it said you have to reserve in advance, but no one replied to my email for a week, then I emailed again and they said no reservation was needed.
When there the staff were nice and helpful and it was interesting, but just think it fell short in many other areas!

The Rabin Museum is well worth a visit, when you are visiting Tel Aviv. It is a handsomely designed structure, a bit out of the way in northern Tel Aviv (Ramat Aviv), but close to other museums and also to the University of Tel Aviv. The museum combines in its presentation the biography and impressive career of Yitzhak Rabin with the story of the establishment of the State of Israel and its wars and quests for peace. Rabin is a central figure in this story and the museum does an excellent job of achieving its goal, while also shedding important light on the plight of the Palestinians and the rise of the right wing in Israeli politics and the challenges, successes, failures, and termination of the peace process. It is mostly a sobering and fair account of what has transpired over the last so many decades.

This museum is a sobering reminder that peace efforts sometimes come at a terrible price, even from your own people. The life of Yitzhak Rabin is intertwined with the modern history (since 1948) of Israel, and you leave with a deeper understanding and appreciation of both Israel's struggles for existence and for Rabin as both a political leader and as a person.

I'm glad it rained during one of our three days in Tel Aviv otherwise we might not have seen this museum, well worth one's time to experience the country's history by following Rabin's life. I really hadn't fully appreciated what an amazing leader and human being he really was until I toured the museum. Take a taxi from your downtown hotel and it won't be hard to catch a ride back from the avenue near the museum. Give yourself 1-2 hours.

Worthwhile museum dedicated to the life of Yitzhak Rabin. A soldier, military leader, ambassador and prime minister, towards the end of his life he was dedicated to creating peace for Israel. The museum seeks to explain the backdrop for his life, both that of Israel and her Middle Eastern neighbors and worldwide. It can be a bit distracting sometimes between the visual and the audio, but a wonderful memorial for this great leader. This is right up the street from the Eretz Israel Museum, and I enjoyed this place much more.
