Given the fact that Israel has been in almost constant armed conflict since its birth, it’s not surprising to learn that the Latrun Armored Corps Museum is one of the largest of its kind in the world. The main building was originally built by the British as a fortress to safeguard the road to Jerusalem. It now holds a museum of history from ancient times to modern, and a theatre screening an introductory video. Surrounding the museum are 160 types of armoured vehicles, including the mighty Merkava tank.
