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.

The Museum is very well located. It is a small building with a very interesting history of the Hagana (Defense) showed through videos and objects that ilustrate the early years before the establishment of the State of Israel

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 Haganah was the genesis of the Israeli army. It had to organize partially secretly under the Brits. This museum beautifully tells the story.

This house was where the beginnings of the Israeli military started. It starts with a 20 minute film and then about an hour to tour the museum. Very interesting and not ugly against the Palestinians. A good two hours spent.

We thoroughly enjoyed this museum, which was easy to follow and very informative. These young people trained each other to protect the young country of Israel prior to the formation of the Israeli Defence Force

This museum really captures the struggle to establish the State of Israel. For older people, it brings back memories of Zionist youth groups. This museum is a must for families with children - it tells a story that should not be forgotten.
