Hatzerim Air Force Base

Small admission charge

Extensive collection of IAF aircraft from the 1948-49 War of Independence to the present. Spitfires, Meteor, P-51D Mustang, Ouragon, Mystere, Magister, Super Mystere, Mirage III, Nesher, Kfir, A-4 Skyhawk, F-4 Phantom, MiG-21 flown to Israel by defector, captured Gazelle, Huey, Noratlas, Lavi, T-6, 707. Total ~80 aircraft, some unique to this museum. 

Also a large collection of anti-aircraft guns, missiles and radars including an extensive collection of Soviet systems captured from the Arabs. 

Hatzerim is an easy day trip from Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and other typical tourist attractions in Israel. The best way to travel is to take the Egged bus to Beersheba, then take the local bus from Beersheba to Hatzerim. The total bus fare for a round trip from Jerusalem is about $30. 

Warning: this museum is outside and located in a desert. In the summer, it is brutally hot and sunny. Dress accordingly and bring lots of water and sunscreen. A small canteen sells drinks, snacks and souvenirs. Since a visit to this museum can easily consume a full day, bringing lunch is a good idea. 

FURTHER WARNING: Hatzerim is a real IAF base (look overhead to see more warplanes) and Israel is at war. DO NOT wander into unauthorized areas. Signs and other descriptive material are mostly in Hebrew, with a fair amount of English.
