Palmach Museum commemorates the role of the Palmach, the elite combat force of the "Haganah," the underground army of the Jewish residents of the British Mandate in Palestine before the establishment of the state of Israel. The striking modern building was designed by Israeli architects Zvi Hecker and Rafi Segal, and contains the exhibit, laid out over several rooms in a display that integrates video, artifacts, and documents with personal narrative history. Visitors must arrange in advance to join one of the group tours through the museum, which are offered in multiple languages and last 90 minutes.

What an incredible and moving experience! The museum truly gives you a glimpse into the life oh the Palmach, I highly recommend you visit! If you have time go to the photo gallery room to see an incredible collection! Definitely leave time for this....
A very interesting and touching tribute to the Palmach and the history of Israel. This is a "must see" IMO. Call or email ahead to make sure that there is a tour available in English when you plan to visit if that is your preference.
