Went to the Palmach museum in Tel Aviv with my 2 boys aged 12 and 14. If you haven’t been yet, go!! Excellent 90 minute dynamic and interactive tour. V well done in Hebrew with English translation. It says for children 6 and up but better for older kids. Thoroughly recommend!
The Palmach Museum is an experiential museum, covering the Palmach legacy through the stories of individuals and groups. Visitors to the museum join the group of young Palmach recruits from its establishment, and advanced through the story of the Palmach until the end of the War of Independence. The manner of presentation is extremely innovative. There are no displays or documents, but rather an account of a fascinating personal story accompanied by three-dimensional decor, films and various effects incorporating documentary materials.
Visit to the museum must be pre-arranged. The tour is carried out in groups of up to 25 people (individuals visitors will be pre-arranged into groups). The tour is for children over 6 years only. The length of the tour is 90 minutes. The presentation is in Hebrew. English, Spanish, French and Russian speakers will be provided with a translation through headphones.
Entrance fee: 30 NIS for adults. 20 NIS for school children and pensioners (payment is by cash, check or credit card).
Bus routes: all routes reaching the Tel-Aviv University, parking is available at the Eretz Israel Museum’s parking areas, situated adjacent to the Palmach Museum.
