The Weizmann institute prides it’s self on it’s beautiful gardens. It’s quite common place to see young couples being photographed for wedding photographs, in the late afternoons.
There are Barolo right trees, other greenery, rolling lawns, fish ponds

Like going back in time. Gives a good insight to the person, the family and the historic period. If you are in Rehovot than visit. I wouldnt come just for this.

We had a little trouble finding the house, as we didn't realize that the only way to enter is from within the Weizmann Institute. The best way to ensure that you will be able to visit is to call in advance: 08 9343944 or 08-9378439.

First we saw a short movie about Haim Weizmann and the house. Then we were handed our audio guides, which turned out to be invaluable. We walked around all three stories of the magnificent house. Each room is numbered so that you know which button to press on the guide, which is available in several languages.

The rooms are arranged pretty much the way they were when the Weizmann's lived in it, although their car is now locked up in a glass room, so you can only view it from the outside.

The gardens are very nice, but far less interesting than the house itself. The Weizmann institute contains many nice gardens, but the Weizmann house is really one of a kind. We spent close to two hours admiring the house and garden, listening to the audio guide, and admiring the displays in the rooms. Some of the explanations on the guide are followed by much longer explanations if you are interested in pressing a separate button to hear them.

The gardens also contain the graves of Haim Weizmann and his wife, very tastefully done and befitting the first president of Israel and his first lady, a wonderful woman in her own right.

The house and the Weizmann Institute took up the better part of a day well spent.

This is the house of Chaim Weizmann, the first president of Israel and his wife, Vera. It is beautiful and cleverly built with many interesting items and furniture. Much historical information was given. Shame that we couldn’t go upstairs due to renovations.

The house is located within the beautiful park of the Weizman Institute of Science. It is left the way it was when Weizmann was living there. On some occasions like the "Rehovot white night" it is open to public with special guided tours. Each room has a story to tell and sometimes they light the whole house with candles only and tell stories about the family and their lives and host ballroom dances on the terrace. If you are in Rehovot it is definitely a place to visit. Afterwards you can hang out in the beautiful park

I love to try and take pictures of popular sites and went for a walk to view the Weizmann home which is located in the Weizmann Institute. It was very challenging to try and find out how to shoot the location from an original angle. But I tried.
The nicest thing that happened is that when I went to the reception office and asked to take some pictures of the inside the cashier mentioned there was a charge. She said I could take pictures but not for commercial use. When I said I like to post reviews with pictures on “TripAdvisor” she gave me a warm welcome and let me roam throughout the home taking all the pictures I want.

The beautiful site is temporarily closed to the public due to renovations. Check the website for re-opening date. There are other very interesting sites on the Weizmann Institute campus in Rehovot

we had an hour to kill before our tour of the Ayalon bullet factory (excellent site). The Weizmann house would have been perfect but other than the rear locked gate, we could not find the entrance to this site. We drove in every direction for 20 minutes and finally gave up. Obviously some signage along the major roads surrounding the site would help.

A very interesting place telling the story of the first president of Israel and a very important figure in the construction of the state of Israel and science exploration.
Also, the place is very well preserved and the tour is interesting.

It's also a great place to start a tour in the Weizmann Institute of Science.
