Menachem Begin was about five foot two inches. What he didn't have in height, he made up in statesmanship, spirituality and spunkiness. The museum gives you the history of Israel under this unusual prime minister. I would see it several times. Goid gift shop, too.

A great museum with easy to understand displays which also mirror the history of the State of Israel. From the opposition to the Prime Minister's Office the journey of one of Israel's beloved leaders will inspire.

The fascinating history of one of israel's great leaders. The story is well told and the movie clips make it easy to follow. If you're on an English tour make sure that the earphones work before the tour starts. We has some issues with ours

A great place. Nicely done with actual artifacts from begins life. No matter what you felt about him it's a great presentation of his life and upbringing.

Like the Palmach Museum in Tel Aviv, the Begin Heritage Center offers an excellent hourly presentation which successfully combines the documentary, interactive, and museum elements. But if the former demonstrates how it was hard to make Israel be born again - and what cost it...More

Yes. There's a public car park 5 mins walk from the Museum at the top of Derech Beth Lechem just before it joins King David Street. (Left side of the road as you are driving up. Close to petrol station.)
