Just a short walk if you are staying at the Gordon Beach end of the city, this is nice look back into recent history. With the original 70s decor it is a nice house to wander around. I wouldn’t make a special trip here if...More

A very modest house for Israel's first Prime Minister. The house seems well preserved but the items are poorly displayed. There is little or no explanation of David Ben Gurion's life, no little or no English or any other foreign language explanation/translation. A short video...More

What surprised me is that the entrance was free. I even received an audioguide! There were very few people, so at one moment I felt like I'm alone in the house. Provided audioguide was very informative, so people interested in a history of Israel should...More

Great insight into David Ben Gurion. Explore the extensive library upstairs. A mini museum that's always worth revisiting.

I have been there 3 times and I would go again. It is very interesting...like a step back in time. It is especially interesting to see appliances and furniture of the day. Ben Grunion's library is phenomenal. I loved pouring over the actual photographs of...More

This is the original, modest abode of Israel's first prime minister, who died in 1973. Long ago converted into a museum with mementos and documents, it still exudes the atmosphere of the early days of the state,
