“You'd better go there with knowledgeable local or official guide”
Reviewed 14 November 2012

There are lot of military equipment inside pavilions and in the yards. You really need a good guide to appreciate all of it as no assistance is provided by default.
I wholeheartedness recommend it for military amateurs and anyone interested in Israeli history.

“For History and Weapon Nuts”
Reviewed 1 June 2012

An immense collection of 20th century weapons and military artifacts. Not a lot of explanations though. Don't go when the weather is very hot because a lot is outdoors and in halls without a/c.

“not very interesting, facts are not accurate and no other visitors!”
Reviewed 5 August 2011

The museum was empty! our family was the only ones there and that was for a reason, the place is not very useful. it looks like the trophies of war and the glorification of death which is something our family found disturbing. there was very little facts and there was no body to help explain what all the horrible pictures of Palestinian refugee being murdered were about. waste of time for a family!
