The Etzel Museum tells the story of the Etzel, a Jewish underground organization that operated in Palestine during the British Mandate period between 1931-1948. The Etzel was founded to fight against British rule in Palestine and to establish a Jewish state.

Etzel Museum - Guns

The Museum is housed in the original headquarters of the Etzel, which was the scene of many of its most significant events. The museum provides visitors with a comprehensive and immersive experience using a combination of historical artifacts, multimedia displays, and interactive exhibits.

Visitors can learn about the history of the Etzel and its key figures, including Menachem Begin, who would later become the Prime Minister of Israel. The museum also provides a detailed account of the Etzel’s operations, including attacks on British military and civilian targets.

Etzel Museum Underground Bunker

One of the museum’s highlights is the underground bunker, which served as Etzel’s command center during the British Mandate’s final years. Visitors can enter the bunker and see firsthand the cramped conditions in which the Etzel members lived and worked. Another fascinating exhibit in the museum is the display of the Etzel’s weapons and equipment, including guns, explosives, and communication devices. Visitors can learn about the techniques and tactics used by the Etzel in its operations, including its use of sabotage, intelligence gathering, and propaganda.
