Take a guided tour of Ayalon Institute Museum, a reconstruction of a hidden bullet factory that played a crucial role in Israel's struggle for independence. The secret factory was established in 1946 and was situated 8 m (25 ft) underground, its entrance disguised by a kibbutz laundry room. On a visit to the historic site, you can hear the story of the 45 men and women who risked everything by working tirelessly on the loud and dangerous ammunition-making machines. Planning Rehovot trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.
