Teaches dug by Jordan are still there, and you can walk through them. Fab views over Jerusalem. The hand to hand battles won here by the Israelis helped to capture the city. This is a must visit site. Museum has some great memorabilia and photos

Great site to learn about the history of the Six Day War. The dug-in trenches and model of the city at that time really make you understand the battles of that time period.

Despite having made several visits to Jerusalem, this was my first time at Ammunition Hill. Unfortunately we were not able to visit the museum but the site itself was very interesting.

But I expected a plaque at the site and didn't see one. Which was disappointing. But maybe it's too sensitive.

If you are interested in military equipment such as tanks and jeeps etc, then this is a place you would enjoy. The items on show were captured during war time from the Sinai. Children & adults would enjoy climbing on the equipment for photos etc

Israel is covered with battle sites both ancient and modern. This 1967 battle site was instrumental in the capture of the Old City of Jerusalem. You will see the trenches, bunkers and command posts that were used by both the Israelis and Jordanians. The interpretive plaques and guide they will give you provide you all you need to know about... More
