Built in 1934, over a well set in sand dunes, the Bauhaus-style building served as a secret training base for Hagana members from Holon and its environs prior to the establishment of the state.
An interactive exhibition and tour allows visitors to experience the tense and clandestine atmosphere, learn about the Hagana in Holon, battle training, the underground activities and life in Holon before and during the War of Independence
Visitors will learn how to search for arms caches and use communications methods like Morse code and Semaphore. There’s an interactive game and an audio-visual presentation about the site.
The tour includes entrance to the old Hosmasa well, where arms were once hidden and which still functions today, and a visit to the garden and the displays scattered throughout it: arms caches and various weapons used during the War of Independence.
