HaReut Museum

Museums in Israel

The museum describes the phases of the construction of the Police Citadel by the British, the battles of the Upper Galilee at the beginning of the War of Independence, the three battles and their participants, most of them members of the Palmach, and a large space is dedicated to the commemoration of the fallen.


HaReut Museum describes what happened during the War of Independence. The Palmach and Hagana forces attacked the police and were repulsed. It was only in the third attack that the citadel was conquered, and then it was given the name “Citadel 28” in memory of the 28 who fell in the battles for its conquest.

The Citadel, formerly called the ‘Nebi Yusha Police Station,’ is a pilgrimage site. The site boasting beautiful views of the Hula Valley draws hundreds of thousands every year, who climb the Palmach Trail, visit the mass grave, and draw strength from the story of heroism that took place here during the War of Independence.

The Museum and its Heritage

The HaReut Museum was established by the late Yehuda Dekel, a member of the scout training in Kibbutz Dafna, 12 of whose members and three of its commanders fell in the second battle with the police.
