Was disappointed to see that they hadn't included history past 1994, but overall it was a great museum for the price. Eilat has an incredible history.

Interesting for those who like to learn the history of the first years of the state of Israel. A small museum with nostalgic pictures from the 50's, very little about Nature. Interesting movies mainly related to operations of IDF. 2$ entrance fee.

Eilat City History Museum is 5 minutes walk from the airport. The exposition is very interesting as brings to everyone knowledge the history of the young Nation and shows the struggle to achieve the Independence.

More of a collection of photos that a museum but there are some other exhibits. The photos are fascinating. There are also some films. Inexpensive, if you are interested in seeing how Eilat has developed over the years then worth a visit.
