Menachem Begin's Legacy Center

You are invited to relive a most dramatic chapter in our history. The Begin Museum is not just a museum, it’s an experience. Using the life story of the 6th Prime Minister of Israel, it tells the story of one of the most fascinating episodes of Israel’s history. The visitor is taken on a journey through history using reconstructions, original items and rare documentary films as well as reenactments, interactive elements, dramatic lighting and an inspiring soundtrack. Visitors are invited to “participate” in the major events of Menachem Begin’s life – his childhood and youth in Poland, commanding the Irgun, leading the opposition in the Knesset and finally, the premiership.
