Is the Bullet factory nearby? My family thought that was facinating.

It closes at 4PM.

Unfamiliar with this.

Why not Mini Israel? I don't think my daughter will appreciate the Tank Museum.
How old is your daughter? After a flight (assuming from  US) will you really fell like doing any touring?

Daughter is 18 in Sem.

I don't think I will want anything major but maybe a small thing on the way from TLV will be okay. Only there for a day and a half so gotta take advantage.
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.
