The Israelis are very good at making museums unlike any other museum visited elsewhere in the world. The Menachem Begin Center is no exception it follows him from a young Yiddish Speaking boy right through his life. His mistakes and his achievements are fairly and informatively presented right through his political career. For those interested in the history of Israel/Palestine... More

An excellent place to visit to get the lowdown on Menachim Begin warts and all. Our guide took us through each of the exhibits and with the commentary playing in English we got the atmosphere of the times and the man. Very well laid out and, with plenty of seats at each stage very easy for the elderly to enjoy.... More

This elegant dairy kosher restaurant is a nice place to have a meal or just sit outside and look at the beautiful old city view. It is centrally located near the center if the city and is easily accessible. Worth the visit.

A unique cool experience that makes you go into the mind and shift in the life and career of the ex-prime minister Menachem Begin. Always relevant, dealing with now day's dilemmas

I was with my tour guide friend who zipped me through the Center. What I saw of the exhibits within less than 30 minutes was very interesting and a nice tribute to Menachem Begin, but we were on a different mission. If you go out from the cafe doors to the outside, bear right, go around the building and up... More

My husband and I just recently went on a small English group tour of the Menachem Begin Heritage Center in Jerusalem. We walked there from the light rail train stop on a beautiful route through Teddy Park and Windmill Park too. The docent who walked us through the museum was extremely articulate and fielded questions with insightful and very thoughtful... More

Good explanations, good visuals, interactive. Worth the time. Parking can be a problem but there is good bus service with a short walk to the site.

My wife and I made a reservation for a tour in English. We found the entire experience very worthwhile but felt rushed. We were told that we could come back without having to pay another entrance fee and could view the exhibits without the guide. I do not know if that is true, we did not have time to test... More

The Begin Museum follows the life of Menachem Begin through use of exhibits and videos of the progress of his life. Make reservations for the tour. You receive a set of earphone that translate every thing into english. Clean, modern, well done. nd the Cafe is quite good.

Learn about the critical role that Menachim Begin played in helping to bring about the formation of the modern state of Israel. THis small museum is very well done and well worth the time to visit.
