  • The Menachem Begin Heritage Center is the official state memorial commemorating Menachem Begin, Israel’s sixth Prime Minister. The museum tells the story of the life of Menachem Begin, The Research Institute of the Begin Heritage Center sponsors conferences, lectures and colloquia in cooperation with universities and other research centers. The center operates varied programs and tours for students, soldiers, and youth visiting from abroad. It also offers the “Junior Knesset” educational program, for middle school pupils, to enhance civic education and the study of Israel’s parliamentary system.
  • A place with clear left opinions on the Israel's realm. And they teach you their opinions like it was facts. This is not true... Also when I visited the place there was an exhibition about the leaders of Israel. They present them not in a respective way.
  • My favorite politician - and its reflected in the center - pictures, memorabilia and yes, history!
  • Lovely place. We attended a nice evening of music here.
  • An inspiring educational tour. Makes you wonder about tomorrow's leaders who don't have the model from a persona like Begin.

Where to stay in Jerusalem

The Old City contains the bulk of Jerusalem's small hotels, inexpensive hostels, and religious hospices, all of which appeal to budget-conscious travelers.
