  • 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.
  • This is a wonderful historical site in Israel well worth the trip. It is handicapped accessible and the washers are well maintained
  • The Menachem Begin Heritage Center is the official state memorial commemorating Menachem Begin, Israel’s sixth Prime Minister.

  • Great place! Fascinating, educational, beautifully designed. Good parking around the corner across from the Tachana Harishona. The restaurant there, Terassa, is amazing. Beautiful place for an event overlooking the walls of Jerusalem. Incredible food.
