  • guided tour of museum was in hebrew with translation with earphones. Not certain whether there are English language tours. This fabulous tour is he living biography (including videos of speeches by Mr. Begin) of his life from beginning to end. Because he is a hero and at the same time, very humble person, who always did what had to be done, this Center is a must for every man woman and child who wants To see an example of someone whose life philosophy and character one should try to emulate. I went with my children and grandchildren, the youngest of whom was eight years old,and everyone Learned a lot, even though they are Israelis and I was the only American. I highly recommend the center to everyone. The tour lasts about 1 1/2 hours. There is also an option for another tour through outside neighborhoods in Jerusalem but I don’t know much about that one.
  • Very interesting and detailed revelation of a controversial character. It's a little out of the way and not every taxi will know where it is, so make sure you get someone who isn't lying when you employ him to take you there. The tour itself (which can be conducted in most languages) lasts about an hour and will deliver "Begin in a nutshell": it will also give you access to far more detailed info should you want it.
  • Fabulous interactive experience. Really explains the ethical dilemmas of a deeply inspired and committed man who had to compromise his values in the face of political realities. Beautiful facility. Snack bar. Gift shop. And patio with a magnificent view of the old city.
  • The name is pretty self explanatory, the place explores the actions and way of life of begin with a lot of detail, it shows you many important meetings he had, and many of his basics to politics, and you get to sit and touch his real living room, with a sofa and a lounge, I'd recommend this place to grown people who would like to know more about him.
  • Great exhibits and lectures. good restaurant. highly reccomend
