This museum definitely warrants a considerably higher rating, so the reason for rating it poorly is not for the museum itself, but rather for those who are supposedly running it. We came on a rainy cold day and entered the empty corridor. There was nobody neither to check our identity nor ask for a " green pass", or to even ask for an admission fee... For the better part of three-quarters of an hour, we roamed the empty former prisoners' rooms, the solitary confinement booths, the gallows chambers, and the former warden's office, during the period of the British mandate ( 1920-1948). As there was no one to guide us, we simply read the signs and tried to understand from them what, where and when certain events took place. It is really a shame that such an important museum, honoring the Jewish underground prisoners during the pre-statehood era, is run in such a disrespectful manner. For the record, this museum falls under the responsibility of the Israeli Ministry of Defense..

Very informative museum. Excellent videos. Multilingual. Very pleasant guide. Very clean and easy to book. Highly recommended this view into history.

Interesting museum right outside the old city!

I stumbled on this museum after I visited Yad Lakashish. This history behind this museum gives great insight into Lechi, Etzel, and Hagana. These were all resistance groups to the British occupation. It is a self guided tourwith a short movie. I would give it 1-2 hours.
