  • It's not a must, but the original Menorah is the same, so it's worth the visit. But, if it doesn't, really won't be missed.

  • למדריכה קראו חנה בן הרוש. מאוד נחמדה ובקיאה בהיסטוריה ובמהלכי המלאיה. התסקיר שלה היה מעניין. הביקור ערך כשעה. הסרט על הכנסת נערך מצוין בחדרי הוועדות שבהן ביקרנו. הרבה מבקרים מכל הגלאים, הדתות והגזעים....  more »

  • Got to see Netanyahu through the glass ♡. Wish I knew Hebrew, then I could understand what they were all saying and arguing about ha.
  • Awesome experiance really worth the trip excellent tour guides very intresting and entertaning.
  • With less lobists and less dealing with its own members salary, this parlament could be more productive and more citizens pro. This Institute and its members doesn't give any good example in the last yers. It is a shame that more and more of its members get incarcerated or expelled due to misbehavior. I sure hope that better days ars ahead. Good luck.
  • Very cool building. I was fortunate enough to get a tour and sit in on some meetings.
  • Make sure you get there while in session otherwise you've got nothing to see there.
