Ammunition Hill was a strategic Jordian stronghold guarding the northern approach to the Old City. In the morning hours of 6 June 1967, Israeli paratroopers fought a series of fierce close-combat battles with the equally brave and determined Jordian defenders as they worked their way along the trench positions, clearing bunker after bunker, and finally overran this base after a four-hour see-saw battle. Much of the defensive system is well preserved. On the grounds are four vehicles including a Sherman tank and a half-track. The Museum presents the stages of the Battle for Jerusalem in a surreal manner. An excellent site to visit.

For anyone interested in Israel’s history, this is highly suggested. It had a nice film with relief map that allowed you to follow the events talked about.

Loved this!

Our family of 8 adults visited here before going into Jerusalem for the day, and I would highly recommend doing it in that order. It provides an informative recount of the taking over of Jerusalem by the Israelis.
