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

The tour of the Menachem Begin Heritage Center Museum is a great presentation of Begin's achievements and struggles. The tour is a combination of a computerized presentation as well as a guide who answers questions. This helped make the experience meaningful and informative.

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.)

How do I get there using public transportation?
