“Interesting and unique”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 November 2013

This interesting hidden museum shows the history of Israels army.
From the first rifles to machines and weapons used in different wars.

A small tip - visit the hangar that houses presents received by the presidents and prime ministers of Israel. Very interesting place

“Informative, interesting and fun.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2013

Real actively small so easy to get through in an hour or two unless you want to ficus on each exhibit. Very informative with respect of Israeli and IDF history. Kids love climbing on the various tanks, armored vehicles and other military equipment. Parents love taking pictures. Not crowded at all and only about USD $4.5 to get in. A bargain. Don't miss it.

“You'd better go there with knowledgeable local or official guide”
4 of 5 bubbles 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”
4 of 5 bubbles 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.
