It is amazing how we can take a walk into history just by entering the late Ben Gurion's residence. It is an informative visit with a lot to see and read. I visited on Friday late morning, just before closing, but the staff were on hand to answer any questions I had and did not feel rushed to leave. A... More

Well worth a visit. Modest house with huge library belonging to one of the most influential founders of the country. Free admission. Located just off Ben Yehuda street.

It's just off Ben Yehuda Street so, if you are doing any shopping at all, it's practically on your way. It is amazing to see the modest circumstances of David and Paula Ben Gurion. The library is the only extravagant part of the house. It feels like you are truly stepping back in time.

Learn about this extraordinary man who many regard as the founding father of modern day Israel. He spoke 11 languages and there are floors to ceiling bookcases with thousands of books that he read. Take the guided tour and watch the movie to learn more about the extraordinary accomplishments and vision of the first premier and longest serving Prime Minister... More

First of all, accessible and easy to find as very close to the Tel Aviv beaches and Tayelet. Located on a very interesting street. Moving tour of a very simple and mosdest house. It was very interesting to me to see how this important man lived. Great library!

A little ways left off Ben Yehuda Street, so snugged in-between other buildings it may be missed, sits this modest museum, made from the early home of the Ben Gurion Family. This cute, quaint, little residence boasts the life of the first prime minister not as an attraction, but as it really was. Having been to a fair-share of homes-turned... More

You get to walk-through David Ben Gurion's house in the "White City" area of Tel Aviv. It's worth a bit of time if you're interested in Ben-Gurion, but don't expect any high-tech displays. What you do see is how simply this great man lived.
