Located just off Charles Clore Park near Alma beach, the Etzel Museum in Tel Aviv offers detailed information on one of the leading military organization in the history of Israel's struggle for independence.

The Etzel (which in Hebrew stands for The National Military Organization) was one of the three main military groups who fought on behalf of Israel's Jewish inhabitants, before the formation of the state of Israel and the IDF (Israeli defense forces).

The museum focuses on the move of the group from secretive activity to official status, as the members of the Etzel joined the newly formed Israeli army after the UN's decision in 1947.  In principal, the Etzel is considered the most extreme of the three groups who existed at this time in the history of Israel (The Hagana and The Lechi are the other two groups).

The museum is well kept and offers a short but interesting tour in one of Tel Aviv's nicer areas.

Admission: 5-10 NIS
Open: Sun-Tur 8:00-16:00 
Address: 15 Goldman St. (Charles Clore Park)

  • Leon Poddebsky  - error

    In a recent visit to the museum I noticed that in one of the two illuminated showcases housing maps of Eretz Yisrael, the caption referred to the 1947 UN partition resolution as having been passed by the Security Council; this is an error. In fact, as the second map display says, it was passed by the General Assembly.
    The difference is crucial because:
    UN General Assembly resolutions are merely recommendations. The partition resolution was unfair to the Jewish People, but it was only a non-binding recommendation. The authoritative binding international decision had been the 1922 League of Nations Mandate, according to which the Jewish National Home extended from the Mediterranean to the Jordan River.

    Keith - I hope to go there on Independence Day. Is Israel Bitran your uncle's name? Or Mordechai Bitran?

  • Gary Heller  - Incorrect information

    The description above states that the Etzel is considered the most extreme of the three organizations, when in fact the Lechi, or Stern Gang was by far the most extreme. The Stern Gang was a breakaway from the Etzel because Stern felt that the Etzel was not radical enough.
