Very interesting museum. Life of begin was amazing like all Israeli old pioneer generation. The museum is in Hebrew so headphones are used. It is all guided with presentations, no real artifacts or objects like a regular museum.

Wonderful to watch the interesting film of the life of Menachem Begin, could had watched much more. You go around with a guide and you have earplugs for your language although you book with the language of your choice,

Menachem Begin was a complicated man, but he had one driving principle in his lifetime-- the establishment of a home for the Jewish people. The Center gives the visitor a glimpse into part of Begin's life from his formative years in the Soviet Union, his rise to become prime minister of Israel and his demise in the wake of the... More

This heritage center can best be described as a shrine to Menachem Begin. As shrines go, it is a good one and one can learn a quite a bit about Menachem Begin. The tracing of Begin's philosophies is particularly interesting and seeing video clips of Begin speaking is particularly impressive. What the center does not provide is any context or... More

Prime Minister Begin was an incredible person. They did a wonderful job characterizing his life in the Begin Center. I feel the museum did was inspiring and gives the participant a fascinating view of his life. That said, the museum is more of a series of videos about his life. Unfortunately, the museum is a fast paced experience that did... More

Book your tour ahead! Good for 9 year old children and older. Well presented historical overview of the development of the modem State of Israel through the lifetime of Menachem Begin. Documents his successes and disappointments as a leader, and delves into the effects of his political decisions on his personal life. Guides are extremely knowledgable.

The center is well worth visiting when in Jerusalem. It shows his life in great detail, describing the man from humble beginnings to the heights reached as an Israeli statesman. Tour takes 75 minutes - not quite enough to allow one to stop and read all inscriptions.

Just this week I visited the Begin Center. Not only is the facility beautiful but the museum exhibit is absolutely incredible. A must for any trip to Jerusalem. It really captures the life of this leader on multiple levels.

The (English) tour consists of a guide who brings you to each sit down location, where a video is played and you're wearing headphones with a good English translation. He also introduces some of the setups. The meat of the visit are the videos, which are extremely well done and powerful. This was a man who cared for the people... More
