This site commemorates one of the most critical battles in the 1967 War that reunited Jerusalem. It was the location of a strategic Jordanian military that blocked access from central Jerusalem to Mt. Scopus. Thirty seven Israel soldiers were killed in the successful battle. The site retains some old tanks and trucks as well as the network of trenches that had to be taken so kids can run around while experiencing the battle. There is also an excellent film, with both English and Hebrew narratives, that describes the lead-up to the war and the war itself, with a 3-D model of the Hill and Jerusalem to bring it all to greater clarity. I have been to the memorial many times and each time I am greatly moved and informed. It is easily accessible by Light-Rail or car (parking lot) and should be a must on every tourists to do list.

A great museum to visit if the history of modern Israel is your interest. The presentations and detailed descriptions of Israel’s 1967 War is particularly well done. Well worth a visit.

I arrived with my teenage daughter when they opened the gates. There was no one there. We walked the battleground, read all the signs, saw all the bunkers and how critical capturing this hill was during the war and walked through the museum. I don't know if visiting the site will do anything to anyone who has no real connection to the place or Jerusalem. I have a relative who fought there during the Six Days War and was injured. I wanted to see the place as a tourist. One has to understand why he/she is visiting than just visiting a museum.
