Ayalon Institute Museum

Ayalon Institute's fascinating story is about a top secret operation which occurred between the end of the Second World War and Israel's independence (1945-1948). On Kibbutzim Hill, north of the city of Rehovot, under the vigilant eyes of the British who ruled the area, a clandestine bullet factory was built underground. The plant was code named " The Ayalon Institute" by members of the Haganah. The building and operation of the "Institute" was a co-operative effort by members of "Hatzofim Aleph" (a pioneer group) and people from the local Jewish clandestine military, who moved to Kibbutzim Hill.. Two shafts leading to the underground plant were disguised under a laundry room and a bakery. After the establishment of the State of Israel, the bullet making machines were moved to a centralized factory. Members of Hatzofim Aleph left Kibbutzim Hill and founded Kibbutz Ma'agan Micha'el in 1949.

Got a GETT taxi from Tel Aviv (116.00nis) to go to Ayalon Institute. We had missed this site when we were last in Israel in July. Everyone said it was a highlight of Tel Aviv and so worth the time to get there. You must nook a tour in advance esp if you need it in English. My hotel called for me a got me on a tour. I arrived 7 mins late and was walked over to where the group was watching an introduction movie. Our guide Sagi was wonderful at explaining everything.
It was truly amazing what these very brave and very smart young people did to assist in the war effort. I am so glad I was able to get out to this historical kibbutz and learn their history as well as my own.
There is a metal circular stairway which is very narrow so please be aware of you can not climb up or down stairs. This is underground so there are no windows if you think you might get claustrophobic. If your tour group is full the space will be tight.
Make sure to have a reservation. It was 24nis for an adult

I took a group of teenagers to the blind museum.
It was the most unique museum I've ever been to. They really make you feel as if you are naturally blind through the total darkness. The guides are phenomenal. The experience is humbling. Some kids may find it very scary. As would some adults.

I don’t usually ever book trips through travel companies, however I decided to use Funtom to help plan a daily activity which was Tomcars.. First off, the activity was planned so well and I had the most amazing time. Everyone there spoke English so it wasn’t hard to communicate and overall it was such a positive and fun experience I will definitely be using Funtom again to plan future services!!

Every Tuesday seniors with IDs, pay only NIS10 for regular movies. Online ticket purchase is not necessary as there is always available Seating and why pay more for this service. Also movies start about 30 minutes after published times due to many commercials and coming attractions giving you just enough time to hit the Irish Pub for Happy Hour's 2 beers for the price of 1 with free munchies.
