  • 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....  more »
  • The place is fascinating in its own right. However, there are almost no signs in the area for instance on the tank, it does not say what it is about the scattered weapons that are not explained. On the course of the battle there is almost no explanation in the area. I would expect that in every bunker there would be a record of several soldiers defending him a few of our soldiers had fallen in battle, etc. Looks like the big money in the place is falling somewhere. Need a strong shake of the system and there is a tremendous pontentiel and the place is a historic national property

  • Fascinating look at the events of the 6 day war, it's physical and cultural affects on Israel and its people. Good vehicle collection and nice exhibitions. The authentic Jordanian trench is very interesting, and really brings home the events you've read about in the main museum. It's very near the Ammunition Hill tram station, so easy to get to, but the signage once out the station is dodgy. Just follow up the hill, keeping left, past the car park to reach it. 25 shekels per head as of July 2019.
