“High tech history puts you there”
Reviewed 28 March 2012

You will need a reservation for the tour and be sure to specify English if that is your need. The high tech presentation puts you where Begin was, in his surroundings, with the sounds and historical figures alive around you. This is a not to be missed visit when In Jerusalem. Have been there three times and have never left less than enthralled.

“well worth a visit”
Reviewed 15 November 2011

Very interesting museum about life of Menachem Begin - terrorist/ freeedom fighter, leader of opposition/ prime minister.
You are taken on guided tour through series of rooms which represent different periods of his life with films relevant to these times , which is also a history of modern Israel.
Although our tour was in Hebrew it didnt really matter as we were given headphones which meant all the commentaries were in English.
Beautiful position near the Montefiores Windmill with grat views of Jerusalem - must book.
I would rate this 3rd best attraction in Jerusalem after Old City and Israel Museum.
