  • A fascinating and accessible museum on the site of the secret ammunition factory the Israelis ran during the war of independence under the noses of the British. The story is easy to understand and very good for children. A good tour is available in English.
  • This is a must visit place if you’re interested in Israeli history! Great tour and fascinating place. Enjoyed our guide David and are so glad we came. Just call the Ayalon Institute to reserve your spot on a tour.
