Palmach Museum Tours

Palmach Museum
The Palmach, an underground arm of the Haganah (a Jewish paramilitary force that predates the Israel Defense Forces), was founded in 1941 to secure a Zionist settlement in what was then Palestine. Today the innovative Palmach Museum transports visitors back in time with multimedia experiences, a photo gallery, archival library, and memorial.

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.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Palmach Museum is ideal for those interested in Jewish heritage, history, and military history.
  • Visits are by prearranged group tour only. Each tour comprises up to 25 visitors (independent travelers will be placed with a group) and lasts about 90 minutes.
  • Tours are conducted in Hebrew. English, Spanish, French, Russian, and Mandarin translations are available through headphones.
  • Children must be over 6 years old to take part in the tour.
  • The museum is accessible to wheelchair users.

How to Get There
The museum is located on Haim Levanon Street, near Tel Aviv University. If driving, you can park at the adjacent Eretz-Israel Museum. To get there via public transport, take a bus to Tel Aviv University.

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.

The Eretz-Israel Museum
Right next door to the Palmach Museum is the Eretz-Israel Museum. Spread over a sleekly designed campus, with great views over Tel Aviv, the museum is composed of an array of interactive displays including a planetarium, wine and olive oil presses, a flour mill, and sections dedicated to archeology, ethnography, history, culture, arts, and crafts. The museum also has a large gift shop and café.
