The museum consists of about 11 different rooms which present a one hour audio/video presentation following the lives of roughly 10 young men and women who were part... More

Our guide was enthusiastic, humorous and patriotic. Very important place to visit to understand how the Modern state of Israel came to be.

Israel does museums like no one else and the Palmach is no exception. Interactive and historic, it explains a period in time that is a must for everyone interested in Israel.

This museum has a unique approach that immerses you in the life of a particular platoon in the Palmach and follows them as they are recruited, trained and participate in the war for independence. It personalizes the commitment and losses of the very undeveloped Israeli military in the war and highlights their quite unlikely but decisive successes,

This is a very moving museum. I've been twice and loved both visits. The heroic struggle of the people in the stories depicted to re-establish a homeland for the Jewish people in their land brought me to tears repeatedly.

This for sure is one of the better places to visit in Tel Aviv. Gives one a very good background to the pre state times, the Palmach, its members, its activites and understanding the micro as well as the macro

The museum, which is experienced on docent-led tour, is unique and very informative. It is a combination of actual video and filmed actors. It tells the story of the origination of the Palmach and its mission in a very stunning way.
