Interesting tour of the Knesset...definitely worth the time! Very informative-good explanation of how the Israeli parliament and democracy work.

We have lead several groups to tour the Holy Land but this was our first trip to the Parliament House in Jerusalem. So very interesting. They are quite proud of all the representation they have but...no Messianic Jews???

There is nothing to do or see here. Just lots of young men and women in uniforms with guns hanging around. Save your time, money and effort for other interesting places.

Visited from outside only - awesome

Felt awed standing outside Knesset - don't envy the difficult work going on inside. Was taken aback for a second by a woman throwing a bucket of dirty water on an official looking car - turned out to be a filming of a movie scene - glad it's not all serious all the time...

Just the entry to this "House of Power" is an experience in itself. Coming from a "peaceful" land like New Zealand to be exposed to the severe security requirements in Israel demonstrates the pressure Israelis live under continually. To sit and watch and listen to these men and women charged with the responsibility to govern this turbulent nation is a privilege. Despite the enormous pressures on these representatives it was great to see humour as well as passion being shown. It was a thought provoking experience from the very entry at the gate to exit.
