This is such and interesting visit no matter how you feel about Israeli politics. It's always interesting to see where the seat of government is. It's a great tour.

Although it was closed when we got there, the soldier helped us with informations and we got to take pictures in the place, so it was really nice.

And also you get to see the 6 ft. tall bronze Menorah there, which is very cool also.

not very pretty from the outside it is what israel was in the 70's. The inside is what we are now :s
the guided tours are alright (but not more) and the security can be a little difficult at times. Really worth the visit though because it is a inseperable part of israel. (try to get a hold of someone who knows the place well though)

From a architectural stand point this is a pretty impressive sight, a very modern building made to fit in to a very ancient city and very well done I might add.
I can only imagine the discussions and debates about world politics and local politics held here but it is well worth coming to see when in Jerusalem!
Avoid Saturdays as most of the city is closed for business!

We enjoyed this free guided one-hour visit.
Two main subjects:
- the assembly itself, and how works the israelian democracy
-Chagall 's chefs d oeuvre
Our kids (5 &9) were keen on Chagall's

Check on the Internet the days and hours of guided visit in your language.

Two more things you have know:

1 Inside the knesset there are cheap and nice cafeterias. Despite if your visit is at 1 and you plan to come at 12 in order to have lunch before the visit, the chomer (guard) at the intrance may refuse you the entry.

2 it is really COLD inside the knesset. You NEED a sweat shirt or pull over
