Fascinating place

Well laid out with information in Ivrit and English. Lots of audio visuals. Well worth watching the video when you arrive. Informative about history of Israel, not just the Hagana.

... visit in the same time with the Independence Hall. The story of the Haganah is very well explained and the exposition is interesting. I enjoyed this stay. Thanks also to the young people at the reception for the explanations.

Take the time to watch the movie....Important perspective and history. The museum has a nice flow and many interesting facts about the history of Israel's 'comeback'.

If you like Israeli history you will enjoy this museum. A few places in the exhibit made me cry in a good way. There's enough English to follow along.

We went to the Hagana Museum which has an interesting film in English and Hebrew about the development of the defence of Jewish Palestine against the opposition of the surrounding Arab countries and the British Balfour Mandate.

Very welcoming, well laid out, rich with history of and insight into the Hagana. I wish they had shared something about their tumultuous relationship with the Irgun, but still a great history lesson with intriguing displays and artifacts.

The museum was very useful in terms of explaining the early creation of Israel. The film they offer at the beginning is well worth watching, so if you have the time, you should see it.
