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

Great museum,wonderful audiovisual exhibits demonstrating the life of perhaps the most important of Israel's founding fathers. 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

If you think you knew Menachem Begin, visit the Center and find out what you didn’t know. Begin was a dedicated Jew and Zionist who understood the need for a Jewish homeland. He was a gifted orator and knew how to make peace. Unlike so...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.)
