The home of one of the Hagana founders has been converted into a museum on three floors. It is well structured and organised, the exhibition beginning with a film about the origins of the organisation and its work to help migrants settle. Exhibits are well presented and supported by short explanations in English and Hebrew. The ground floor of the... More

You take an audio translator with you so no need to book ahead. Very clean and kept up facility. You can get a multi-pass for a month to 2 other museums.

The introductory movie provided all you need to get the intent of this museum. It really helped to understand the different military organizations within the country that fought for independence. However, the museum's English translations are falling off and it affects the presentation. There are some audio presentations that are only in Hebrew, understandably so, but for English speaking tourists... More

Contrary to popular belief, admission is not free. It's 15 shekels per adult. Make sure to bring your passport and visa card! It takes about 40 minutes to see the short intro movie and explore the floors of the museum. A great stop while exploring Rothschild Boulevard.

It is a must visit place for all interested in hagana & IDF history. Prepare to spend around 30-40 minutes in the museum and receive just enough information about the beginnings of IDF. There are some pretty cool exhibitions in the museum. Very nice service, too! The price is just about right - 15 ILS.

This is a very manageable museum - will take about 2 hours to go all the way through. Make sure you see the video introducing the history of the Hagannah. You can skip the video on the 4th floor, a little campy.

Lots of information presented in an interesting captivating manner. You start with watching a video which gave all the necessary context in concise documentary style. They ran the show even though there was only 2 of us. We left with great respect for the Israeli.

First to enter this museum you need to show your passport and your visa. The visit is very interesting even if you know the history of the region and Israel. It worth it. You can buy a ticket for this museum and Hetzel one which is about 20 minutes walking.
