If you are visiting Tel-Aviv and have a morning off your busy tourist schedule you might want to check out the Etzel Museum which will give you an insight into the struggle for independence that this tiny country went through. ETZEL is the Hebrew abbreviation for the Irgun Tzvi-Leumi (also called Irgun). The Etzel operated during the British Mandate of Palestine from 1931 to 1948.
Sorry that the museum internet site is in Hebrew only, I have written the a letter asking that it be translated into English. But you might also check out this link:

The musem is open Sunday to Thursday from 08:30 - 16:00
Entrance costs 15 NIS (about 3 Euro)
If you are interested in a bit of Israeli history, visit the museum, but until you do, check out this link:

Directions: Etzel Museum
King George Street #38, Tel-Aviv/Yaffo
Just ask for the Charles Clore Park, it is along the shorline between Tel-Aviv and Yaffo.
