We weren't happy with our guide who wasn't very organised and informative -6th June Wednesday afternoon- but those who had a good guide thought the centre was amazing.

It's an exciting journey through a great leader's life. Not your regular museum, rather an experience.

You must visit this place after the Kotel. That's how important it is! You learn about how one person who is honest and faithful changed the world and brought peace to this region

However it fails to mention Begin's critical role during the Six Day War when he joined the ruling party to create a national unity government. This gave confidence to...More

I've been to this museum twice, because I liked it so much. You are brought through different rooms and told via audio/video the biography of Begin. From his childhood in Europe, his imprisonment by the Soviets, and his political rise and influence in the Jewish...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.)
