Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Firstly, if you are coming by light rail, use the exact address to get to the entrance. If not, you’ll end up at the locked back gate or a very large bus depot!
On arrival, people were helpful and explained what to look at using the very good audio. The museum is cleverly laid out with personal stories and lots of detail - very well presented. Overall, an excellent visit and very well worth the time.

Ammunition Hill was a strategic Jordian stronghold guarding the northern approach to the Old City. In the morning hours of 6 June 1967, Israeli paratroopers fought a series of fierce close-combat battles with the equally brave and determined Jordian defenders as they worked their way along the trench positions, clearing bunker after bunker, and finally overran this base after a four-hour see-saw battle. Much of the defensive system is well preserved. On the grounds are four vehicles including a Sherman tank and a half-track. The Museum presents the stages of the Battle for Jerusalem in a surreal manner. An excellent site to visit.

For anyone interested in Israel’s history, this is highly suggested. It had a nice film with relief map that allowed you to follow the events talked about.

Our family of 8 adults visited here before going into Jerusalem for the day, and I would highly recommend doing it in that order. It provides an informative recount of the taking over of Jerusalem by the Israelis.

Our family, including 7 & 10 year old grandkids, were here and all of us were fascinated. One of the best movies we have seen in any of the sites we visited in Israel and very moving. The kids loved playing in the trenches. The museum held their interest as well although sometimes it was hard to get the audio guides to sinc with the pieces in the museum but it mostly worked. I learnt a lot about the history of Jerusalem and would definitely recommend a visit.

Ammunition Hill, which was a fortified Jordanian military post in the northern part of Jordanian-ruled East Jerusalem and the western slope of Mount Scopus ( between 1948-67) , is now memorial to the brave Israeli paratroopers and soldiers who paid the ultimate sacrifice securing the strategic hill, during the bloody battles for Eastern and old Jerusalem during the 6 day war of 1967 .
The memorial can be reached using public transport ( light railway , as well as by bus , then a 5 minute walk up a slight hill ) .Generally speaking , you need an appointment to enter , but on the day, I was lucky , and was allowed in without one .The museum is opposite the Mahal memorial to overseas volunteers who helped the IDF .
Ammunition Hill generally appeals to Israelis , but is a worthwhile site to visit for Middle Eastern history buffs .
The last time I visited was 1984 , so I was eager to see what if anything had changed in the meantime - nice new auditorium by the looks of things !!.
I opted for an audio guide ( in English) to the museum , which also included the remote switch to open the museum door .
As there was no actual guide book , I took lots of pictures of the info stands - ( see included pictures ).
Voices from the past , along with realistic sound effects crackled in my ears , and by the time I reached the memorial to the fallen , the enormity of the sacrifice ( of the paras etc) had gotten to me .
The trenches , which so many years ago had accommodated Jordanian troops , are quite narrow , and I found it hard to comprehend how Israeli soldiers weighed down with kit ,could have conquered such a place , even taking into account the casualties incurred .
The trenches for obvious reasons are not meant for disabled folk , and to be honest , I think more should be done to accommodate folk that are physically challenged .
There is also an auditorium , where a film is shown along with a model which is illuminated during the narration of the film to highlight the battles
The Ammunition Hill memorial , has few souvenirs on sale, which is a great pity , ( they could learn a LOT from the gift shop area at Yad La Shiryon , armoured Corps memorial site at Latrun ) .
Despite its few failings , I can still recommend this place for an informative visit

Should not be missed. We booked an English tour which was great. The movie at the end was so moving as the veterans explained it to their grandchildren

The museum and the site bring alive the 1967 battle to reunite Jerusalem. Our group had a wonderful guide which added much to the experience. Good for all ages, tourists and Israelis.
