We visited the museum on a very cold day.  We preceded our Museum tour by visiting Herzl's simple grave a few hundred metres away where he was reburied almost 50 years after his death.  It is in a pleasant garden area on the top of Mt Herzl which is also worth visiting. The museum tour itself was quite different from any museum I had visited before: cleverly engineered scenes and film clips are used to explain what prompted Herzl's vision and how he then set about trying to achieve it. The script keeps your attention, often using Herzl's own words, which as he was a journalist are well written and often inspiring. The various scripts delicately avoid modern day political strife and whilst obviously intended to be positive about Israel and its future, do so in a way that concentrates on Herzl. Our tour was led by a guide called Shoshi who made it enjoyable and seemed able to answer any question asked about Herzl.

We really enjoyed our visit to the Herzl museum. They have used innovative technology and creative ideas to share the story of Herzl's life and dreams in a way that is interesting and easy to understand. We had an excellent and entertaining guide - you need to book the tour in advance to get a guide who speaks English. I would recommend this for tweens and teens upwards, not so much for younger kids. Israel has some really excellent modern museums, and this is certainly one of them!

Our tour of the Herzl Museum was a highlight of our trip as put much of what we were seeing and hearing into perspective in an entertaining and engaging way. The guide was outstanding and left our children deeply inspired.
