Macon Ayalon (Hebrew “Ayalon Institute”) was the code name for a secret bullet factory operating underground near rechovot between 1946 to 1948.  It produced 8 meters (25 feet) below the surface 2.25 million 9 mm bullets, which were vital in the first stages of the war of indepandance.

Since 1987 the site operates as a museum and is one of the most popular atractions related to the establishment of the state of Israel.

Visitors descend through a secret shaft to the underground factory, and learn about the risks and dramatic moments in the operation of Machon Ayalon.
