We bought the Jerusalem City Pass and went to this museum because it was one of the options. I was so happy to have found it; the presentation was extremely well done and was very memorable. I had not heard anything about Theodor Herzl prior to going to this museum and yet, he was of major importance in the founding of the State of Israel. Do not miss this one!

Akin to visiting our Arlington National Cemetery, my visit to Mount Herzl when on my Birthright trip (ages 27-32) was very moving. Buried here are soldiers (almost all very, very young) and national leaders (including Herzl and many prime ministers and presidents of Israel). There are also monuments (such as one to memorialize Ethiopian Jews who died trying to reach Israel). Large, sprawling, very beautiful, and very moving - it's worth a visit if you're exploring Jerusalem.

If you like seeing monumental spaces, this is a good one. Top of a hill in Jerusalem, great views of the city, many burial sites of great Israeli leaders with good commentary on why each one was important in Israel's history - lovely visit
