Frumin House covered in tarp ahead of its conversion into the Knesset Museum

Frumin House on Jerusalem`s King George Street, which served as the Knesset`s temporary abode from 1950 to 1966, was covered in tarp on Tuesday ahead of its conversion into the Knesset Museum.

The tarp is covered with images of deceased prime ministers Golda Meir and David Ben-Gurion in the old Plenum Hall, and of Menachem Begin delivering a speech. The images were provided by the Government Press Office. The construction of the museum is expected to be completed in about two years.

In April former Knesset Director-General Ronen Plot launched a street exhibit surrounding Frumin House which features photos and anecdotes from the first days of the Knesset, photos of heads of state and foreign dignitaries who visited the Israeli parliament, photos from the Knesset cafeteria in those days, and more.
