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.

Excellent description of how Israelis had to prepare to defend themselves, once the British left the area and were no longer protecting them from hostile neighbors. Entertaining, as well as informative. Very cool to see the actual equipment used to produce ammunition, still operational, and in the actual location.
Really interesting and moving experience. Site of clandestine bullet production prior to the war of independence. Young people put their lives on hold and at risk to help the state come into being. Tours in English available
