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 overwhelming when you use Inspirock's itinerary maker.

A fascinating and accessible museum on the site of the secret ammunition factory the Israelis ran during the war of independence under the noses of the British. The story is easy to understand and very good for children. A good tour is available in English.
This is a must visit place if you’re interested in Israeli history! Great tour and fascinating place. Enjoyed our guide David and are so glad we came. Just call the Ayalon Institute to reserve your spot on a tour.
