“Interesting”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014

The site has a small museum, okay guide pamphlet, and limited signage. While it is obviously a significant historical site, it is hard to grasp what you are looking at. The portion of the Tel where the University of Chicago dug through all the layers of civilization in a cut-away is interesting to see how the site has built up over time, and the rock-hewn water passage is also impressive. But in general, it is a poor comparison given all the other historic sites in Israel. If it is to be ultimately the site of Armagedon, is up to believers to determine for themselves.

“Armageddon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

Harr Megedon ( Megiddo Mountain) know as “Armageddon” due to how many times this place has been razed to the ground which makes the multi level ruins have tremendous feeling of history. I remember running around it as a kid and to revisit it as an adult was even more strong.

Worth the visit even just for the view as it is a hill. Make sure you set aside plenty of time to tour this and go down deep into the coolness of the watery inside.

“Armageddon's final battle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

Amazing to see 20+ levels of civilization over nearly 9000 yrs of history with the final battle to occur here in the future. The Tel sits in the beautiful Jazreel valley. The tunnel for water is a engineering marvel for people of that era to dig without modern technology. Visit is worth a couple hours to fully appreciate this history.

Awesome ruins and place of biblical reference.
Very interesting site.
Souvenir shop seemed a bit on the expensive side but otherwise was great to experience Megiddo.

“Major historic site”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2014

Good mosaics uncovered in excavations and a wonderful view to look over the valley. Our guide was very knowledgable in telling us its historic/biblical significance.
