The Palmach Museum is an experiential museum that relays the incredible story of the elite striking force of the Hagana-the underground military organization of the Jewish community in Palestine, prior to the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948.
Visitors to the museum join a group of new Palmach recruits from the establishment of the Palmach through to the end of the War of Independence. The presentation is highly innovative with three-dimensional décor, films and special effects bringing to life the documentary material.
The Palmach museum was in construction for almost a decade and the wait was well worth it. The Director of the Museum, Ilan Lev, explains that the Museum’s goal was to enable the public to truly sense the period in which the Palmach operated and this gem of a museum does just that with it’s exciting multi-media experience.
….”In the spring and summer of 1941, within the framework of the Haganah organization, six mobile assault companies (Palma) were created as a national and regional combat reserve suitable for immediate action. At the beginning of the war, December 1947 -March 1948 year, Palmach was the first mobilized military force…” With these words the story of the Palmach begins…
The history of the creation of the State of Israel and the history of its heroes comes to life in the museum.
The documentary, as well as all the personal stories of heroism, self-sacrifice and survival of young fighters, is delightful and unforgettable.
Visitors are arranged into groups, keeping in with the character of the presentation and symbolizing the Palmach team spirit. Individual visitors are pre-arranged into groups. The exhibit is built in a chronological fashion and advances through a series of underground chambers, starting and finishing in a memorial hall for the Palamach members who died while fighting for the establishment of the State.
Visits to the museum must be pre-arranged. The ninety-minute tour is carried out in groups of up to twenty-five people and children must be over the age of six to participate. The presentation is in Hebrew and English, Russian, French and Spanish speakers will receive head-phones that provide a translation.
The Palmach House has two permanent exhibitions: The Palmach Mission Exhibition and the Yad Lahal Exhibition.
Please note that you can only view one display per visit.

Hello reader. My name is Charlotte Noris and I am sure that you will definitely enjoy my blog. Do you know why? All because on the pages you will see bright and colorful photos, as well as useful information. My husband and I are freelancers, so we can travel at any time of the year.
For myself, I most often plan tours in advance, but it also happens that the trip turns out to be spontaneous when I see an interesting place and a nice price. At the age of 35, I have visited more than 30 countries and do not plan to stop there. I want to visit all continents and the most secret corners of our planet.
