|kids playing on old tank at Latrun Tank Museum|
Although I hope all tanks will be turned into tractors speedily in our days, my kids definitely had a blast (no pun intended) playing with these (non-functional) machines of war. On a more serious note, the museum also provides an appropriate backdrop to discuss why we still need an army and as a remembrance of the brave soldiers who died protecting our country.
Just a 20 minute drive from Ramat Beit Shemesh, the tank museum is educational and fun for the whole family. My only suggestion is to go when the weather is a bit cooler as the whole place is outdoors....unless of course you plan on cooling off at the gorgeous Yishi pool.
