Don't mean to be a naysayer, but once you put Palmach Museum in your "Top 10", then what about the Haganah musuem, the Etzel museum, the Lechi musuem, the Tzahal Museum, Yad Lashiryon Tank museum @ Latrun, IAF museum in Beer Sheva, etc etc... The list doesn't end!  I really honestly do think that all the aforementioned are awesome places, however if a VIP or a group of professionals come to IL and you have to get down to ~10 specific sights to see =top 10, I wouldn't put any of those on the list.  They're very important, and I highly recommend them, but just not that important IMHO.

The only museum's which are a must are Yad Vashem and the Israel Museum (Bible Lands museum which is a few feet away - right across the entrance, wouldn't hurt).  The City of David/Davidson Center/Southern Wall excavations would/should probably anyways be incorporated in a visit to the Kotel and Kotel "tunnels".

Please don't insult the beaches of South Floridai! ;D

The only things to see in Eilat is the underwater reefs/diving or whatever, and perhaps Hai Bar and Kings City biblical theme park.

Otherwise it's a poor ugly city (outside of the immediate hotel area).

I've always enjoyed watching the jaws literally drop when non-frum or modox ppl check out the Mir Beis Midrashim (Beis Yeshaya 3rd floor in particular). It's quite an experience for anyone who has never seen something like it. I highly recommend it for anyone who grew up in a non-yeshiva environment

I found Eliat awesome.
I did Chai Bar, Scuba diving, snorkeling, king solomon copper mines, but I don't think it is worth the trip if you only have a week.

How'd you enjoy the sandy err I mean rocky beaches?

ETA-  If you haven't been snorkeling/scuba in an actually exotic place before I guess I can see the appeal.

Agreed. And the Kineret is the only water I enjoyed swimming in.

I actually loved the salty water in Eliat, it was so blue.
