The Knesset is a wonder of modern Israel and is incredibly accessible and entirely worth a visit. Highly recommended!

We had a very knowledgeable and pleasant English-speaking tour guide (Chovav) who gave overviews of the building as well as the judicial system. He answered questions knowledgeably about the current political situation without bias. We brought along a picnic which we enjoyed afterwards in the lovely Garden. Make sure and bring your passport or they will not let you enter. Tours are given on Sundays and Thursdays, make sure to sign up for your preferred language.

Impressive site
Oct 2019
One of the most impressive parliament buildings. There is a beautiful garden outside the Knesset, a model of the Temple lamp and more. Within the Knesset you can view historical treasures of the Jewish people and the work of the Israeli parliament.

Nice to See from the Outside
Sep 2019
No entry to the public. Interesting to know that is the building where their government meets. There is a nice rose garden across the street with a large menorah donated to the Jews from the British that is more interesting to see and observe up close.

Wall and Fences
Aug 2019
There was a fence and wall around it, so we could not get up close. Maybe you can book a visit. But it was not like many castles and parliment buildings that you can get close and take photo. Atleast we did not see any possibilities.

The accessibility and beauty of true democracy and the drama of the rebirth of Israel is a marvel to experience. Seeing how this amazing democracy investigates a bill and how the parties work together with the executive and judicial branches is great but also the mechanisms unique to the Knesset to make it a house of the people. A must see.

Wonderful tour
Jul 2019
This was one of the highlights of the trip. The tourguide was terrific and although the Knesset was not working the building was a wonderful experience. The explanations of Israel democracy and the architecture is very, very interesting.

Closed and no picture

We could only see Knesset from outside, and we were not allowed to take any picture. I was nothing speciel, but the museums next to Knesset was worth the walk.
