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 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!!

Reviewed By Sassy517 - New York

Our family of four (two parents and our 21- and 23-year old sons) spent four days with Gary in January, 2016. His knowledge of Israel, the history, the sites, and the geo-political landscape are phenomenal. Gary traveled with us in the Galilee region, the Golan, Safed and Masada (including a float in the Dead Sea). We toured religious sites, archaeological sites, towns and areas of military significance. Gary is smart, funny, personable, flexible and a fantastic resource for experiencing this beautiful and complicated region.
We enthusiastically recommend Gary!! We are hoping to return to Israel and visit other sites, and we would absolutely ask Gary to guide us again. Because he is originally from the US (he moved to Israel as a young man), he related well to us as Americans and there was no language issue. We felt safe with him and highly confident in his knowledge and expertise. A bonus was that he is fun to be around! My sons ended up calling him "Uncle Gary" and we extended an invitation to him to visit us back in the US.
Do not hesitate if you are looking for a great private guide in Israel. Ask for Gary!!

We came here about 10 friends from work. We were truly blown away. The staff is
professional and helpful, though, to be honest, the game itself is super intuitive and easy to learn. It just engulfs you completely in a manner of minutes.
The flow is as smooth as anything I've ever seen, and the game is an amazing combination of simple yet interesting. There's plenty of room for team strategy and group play, and at the end you even work out (lying on the floor and all).
Great great great experience. Do not think twice, grab your friends and colleagues and head on down.
I know we will be back here...
