HaReut Museum Metzudat Koach

Museums And Culture, National Sites

The Koach Fort, formerly called Nabi Yusha Police is a pilgrimage site. Every year hundreds of thousands visit the site, the gem of a rare scenery with a wonderful observation point to the Hula Valley.

The museum's establishment was prompted by the late Yehuda Dekel.

Yehuda was a member of Hachsharat HaTzofim (scouts) in Kibbutz Dafna. 12 of its members and three of its commanders died during the second battle against the police.

On January 10, 2014, the sixth anniversary of the death of Yehuda Dekel, the museum was dedicated to his name with spectacular display combined with the most advanced media devices.

This is the first museum in Israel in which innovative technology is implemented called "Augmented reality".

In the middle of the room there is a table and on it a map of the galilee with the fort. Through the use of tablets that are directed toward the table, the fort appears in a three dimensional representation and the battle comes to life whereby the visitor becomes a part of the experience and "participates" in the battle; a special section is dedicated to the Palmach training recruits.

At the end of the tour there is a memorial wall for those 28 soldiers who fell there. Each one of them has a personal memorial drawer dedicated to him in which his belongings are kept.

Some of them have even been integrated into the display to show the private lives of the youngsters who, upon their death became national heroes.
