Israel Army Museum The Israel Army Museum presents the history of the IDF from it's formation in 1948 up until today. rating : 4 4 0 out of 5 / 11 votes

The Israel Army Museum presents the history of the Israeli Army, the IDF, from it's formation in 1948 until the present day. The IDF (short for the Israel Defense Force) was formed from the merging of the pre-state Hagana, Lehi and Irgun military forces and today the IDF is regarded as one of the top military forces in the world (ranking number ten in the 2011 World Military Strength Ranking).
The Israel Army Museum is a must for IDF and/or military fans, with it's displays of weapons caches, weapons, tanks, armored vehicles, uniforms, photographs, gifts from the chiefs of staff, etc. The vehicle used by Motta Gur when the Old City was captured in 1967 also rests in this Museum, as does David Ben-Gurion's car from when he was Minister of Defense. It is easy to amble around this fascinating museum, taking in the colorful history of the IDF in the mainly outdoor pavilions.
