Palmach Museum

10 Levanon St, Tel Aviv, Israel

The Basics

The Palmach Museum is laid out across a set of underground chambers. Starting in the memorial hall, visitors are taken on a historical journey following a group of young Palmach recruits through the elite unit’s establishment, until the end of the War of Independence. Unlike other museums that recount history with artifacts, documents, or written placards, at the Palmach Museum, audio-visual experiences and 3D displays tell of the Palmach and personal stories of its fighters.

When to Get There

The museum is open Sunday through Friday by appointment only. Call ahead to schedule your visit. Israel is busiest in peak season (June to September), so you might want to visit Tel Aviv in spring, when the weather is still warm but sights are less crowded.
