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 that the Jerusalem Brigade did not get their fair share of the credit for taking Jerusalem, something the management of the museum should look into.

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.

Important historical site

Had our guide been better, I believe our experience would have been better. We have been before, but only on the grounds. The museum is nice but not up to the other museums we have been to in Jerusalem. When we came in 2010, our guide brought the battle to life with his storytelling....

Had our guide been better, I believe our experience would have been better. We have been before, but only on the grounds. The museum is nice but not up to the other museums we have been to in Jerusalem. When we came in 2010, our guide brought the battle to life with his storytelling. I was hoping for an even better experience. You need to stand by the trenches to grasp what it took for the Israelis to capture this hill. Definitely go if you have time. Confirm your guide before you go.

Moving Museum to 67 War

Even though I thought I knew a lot about the 67 war having lived through it as a teenager, this museum is well worth the visit for the information, emotion and views it provides. Definitely allow 2 hours and take the Museum tour and watch the film. Call ahead for an special language tour....

Even though I thought I knew a lot about the 67 war having lived through it as a teenager, this museum is well worth the visit for the information, emotion and views it provides. Definitely allow 2 hours and take the Museum tour and watch the film. Call ahead for an special language tour. The approx $30 cost for both is well worth it. It was a very emotional tour of the Museum and listening to actual heroes tell their stories. It is a well put together Museum and at the end the gold wall of all those fell is haunting. The footage of the battle to retake the old city of Jerusalem and coming upon the Wailing Wall is heart wrenching. You end the tour with an outside tour of the bunkers at Ammunition Hill and the views of Jerusalem and the memorials put up since the war and other wars. The movie does a great job of explaining visually along with a map of the battles and the challenges of fighting in this very hilly dangerous terrain. Definitely worthwhile spending your time here.
