What people are saying:

During the British control period, Fort Aker was the country’s main prison in the north. The prisoners included hundreds of members of the underground movement: Haganah, Irgun, and Lehi. The museum has new exhibition halls that describe their images, their daily lives in prison, the reasons for their escape from Ake prison, and Olei Hagardom (those set on the gallows People) story.

    Make sure you DEMAND they give you the headset

    It's a really well set up exhibit, loved the use of sculpture to give a sense of the use of the spaces -- with each piece being distinct. The IDF owns it, so you're going to HAVE to show identificatio...
