The Begin Museum, located walking distance from the Inbal, King David, and other motels, chronicles the life of former prime Minister begin- from his Eastern European childhood through his time as prime minister. The pictures, videos, and items from his life pain a vivid picture of this icon's life. It very much reminded me of the Ronald Reagan Library in... More

This museum is well designed to get a complete look at the man, his education, his travails, his philosophies, and politics. Visit is only by guide, so make a reservation. They rush you a little, but still well worth the time. There is also a beautiful view of the old city walls where you can have a coffee or snack.

I visited the Begin center and almost lefr before seeing it as I encountered unhelpful staff but that would have been a huge mistake. True you cannot go round at your own pace and that is a big problem but the tours are very good and extremely informative and also it shows some of the negatives about Begin which there... More

There were several factors that made this museum one to skip. First, the museum is designed so that one cannot go at one's own pace. You are herded from room to room by a guide. You cannot really ask questions because the tour is timed and if you have a conversation it will cut into the next presentation. Each room... More

This museum is informative, interesting, and has a gorgeous location. The facility is kept clean. Since there isn't much walking, it is great for people with limited mobility. Additionally, the museum's multi-media design allows you to see the life and legacy of Menachem Begin through many facets, including his personal archives. While some people say that they felt rushed because... More

This is a fairly new museum in Jerusalem. About 10 yrs. old. It is interactive. You are guided along with a guide and earphones from room to learning about the life of Begin and historical context. Really well done. Highly recommend it. Also, helps to see the rise of the Likud Party.
