A small and very modest house - the home and office of one of Israel's founders, also first and third PM. He had a huge library - he took only a small part of it to Sde Boker and most of it was left in Tel Aviv for the public. the other rooms are simple - almost monastic. You need... More

... and also in the private life of David Ben Gurion. An impressive private library. I could imagine DBG reading and discussing with his friends and different politicians. I recommend this visit to the israeli History.

This is a wonderful site to visit in Tel Aviv. I would recommend this historical house as a must visit when in Tel Aviv. It is a very lovely home.

Besides the nicely presevred house and its facilities, which reflect in quite a genuine manner the personality of David Ben Gurion, there is also a small multimedia pavillion where you can watch a short, but touching movie (in several languages) about this great man and his time. The regular guided tours (for the groups of 10 and more) are in... More
