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

Beautiful location right in the center of town. Just off the road in a beautiful building. They have many special events that are very worthwhile

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.

Many friends and relatives have visited the Being Museum and we had only heard good things about it. While the Museum does give a thorough overview of his life, we didn't like the main focus on video clips while moving between rooms. First of all, the tour was timed and if you spent to much time in one room, the... More

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.
