Shaar haGai

Shaar Hagai Han Shaar Hagai was built in the 19th century as a roadside inn for pilgrims bounding from Jaffa for Jerusalem. It was a witness to many battles for this road. These days it is transformed into a Museum dedicated to the story of Han and the tragic events around the road that it guarded, as well as perpetuating the Palmach soldiers who liberated Jerusalem. There is an operational log kept by Palmach soldiers during liberating Jerusalem and video documentation of that time on the winding table resembling a road. The transparent screens on the background are dedicated to the major events in Izmail and in the world and related military action. Large screens with a Polaroid style frame show documentaries of Israel and its capital before the war.
