Palmach Museum, Tel Aviv

The palmach- the Ha'hagna strike force was established in 1941 during the Second World War, due to the growing fear of German invasion to Israel. The palmach, a brigade of young volunteers became the Hangana's regular military force. With the end of the Second World War the main focus of the Palmach's attention was shifted towards the British occupants during the mandate days and for holocaust survivors rescue missions. The crowning glory of the Palmach was during the independence war were the brigade took an important role. Out of the the 12 Hagana regiments, 3 were from the Palmach who were the spearhead of the in the independence war and the foundation of the state of Israel.

The Palmach was formed from the beginning as a professional elite military force who sprouted military thought and values, who among others were the corner stone's of the Israeli Defense Force. The conditions for the Palamach's foundation unified it to a pioneer social body. 

The Palmach bases were within the kibbutz and volunteers trained while tending to the kibbutz everyday work. Then shared living of young men and women in tent camps away from home and school gave birth to a unified group of idealistic scoail group. On the bases fighter grew, and alongside them some of the greatest poets, play writers and actors of their time. Within the Palmach tent, a new Israeli persona was growing. Articulating with a speech form, emotional connection and way of life. The Palmach museum conveys those same stories of personal growth and oneness alongside the fields of battle.

The Palmach museum is an experiential museum which conveys to the visitor, using stories of the Palmach heritage with its foundation through training, resistance during the mandate times and to the independence war which constituted the highlight of the Palmach activity.

    In addition you can catch a train from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv (Drop off at Tel Aviv University) and from there you can catch a taxi or another bus. A taxi should cost not more than $10 from the stations to the museum.

    Israel railways:

    Taxi from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv will cost you around $120 which is much more expensive than bus or train...(X10).
