You need to book ahead to be able to have the tour which includes the museum (it cost 35 shekels for an adult, 30 shekels for a school student). Our guide was very informative and the museum was well worth a visit. Due to time,...More

Interesting memorial, we took the light rail to the stop nearby, a short walk up the hill and you are there. A very good video is presented with an explanation of the war.

Museum, exhibits and movies are fabulous. Worth a visit to understand the major “battles” and history of Israel.

A worthwhile visit. Entrance was difficult to find. Can be reached on the light rail. We enjoyed walking around...viewing the trenches and memorials. You have to make a reservation for a guided tour of the museum. The movie is worthwhile and there’s a topographic map...More

Wow! This site has been redone. New building is under a year old. Well done exhibit. Includes personal stories to make it come alive. It is very different from old tour. Expect to take at least one hour. Kids live running outside on the property.

In the early hours of the Six Day War (6 June, 1967) young Israeli paratroopers advanced on Ammunition Hill, which was defended by dug-in Jordanian troops. The paratroopers took this strong-point at the cost of 36 dead and some 70 wounded. Ever since, Ammunition Hill...More

I'm not a huge fan of battlefields, but our guide's stories about the 67 war combined with the trenches made this a memorable visit. There are tanks you can climb on and a film.

As noted in another review, this museum is with a guide and should be reserved ahead of time. We did not know this, but they were able to accommodate us anyway. It was very interesting, very moving. One of the people on our tour noted...More

Small battlefield. Nice audio visual model and film. They will not let you into the museum without a guide. I arrived at 10am and the next guide was 2pm. Be warned.
