If you are in TA you must take time to see this place. A very important person for the history of Israel! The house is very close to the beach and also closed to some main streets such as Dizengoff and Ben Yehuda.

I had a few hours to kill with a 10 1/2 year old grandson and remembered that David and Paula Ben Gurion's Tel Aviv residence was a five minute walk from our hotel. I was delight to discover that entrance was free! I gave my grandson a tour of the residence and regaled him with stories regarding our first Prime... More

What a little gem this free museum is to the wandering tourist. A fascinating insight to the man that was David Ben Gurion, a key leader to the founding of the state of Israel. Here you will see his personal possessions, family photos, his kitchen, bedrooms etc etc in fact his home which still feels very much like a home... More

Having heard of Ben-Gurion all my life it was awe inspiring to actually step into his home. There is no charge to walk through the house and learn more about this incredible man. Most amazing is the library - or I should say libraries - there are 3 rooms of book shelves!

BG's library is impressive with thousands of books. The museum is educational and well maintained. It's a good pairing with his home in Sde Boker.

This is a house that has a full library, photos and the place a great man called home. It is a walk back in history to the birth of a nation.

After countless trips to Israel, I finally visited David Ben Gurion's Tel Aviv residence. This is an impressive tour of living history that is worth a 60-90 minute visit. There are over 22,000 books in the library upstairs and another 5,000 in his Sede Boker home in the Negev. The docent explanation was excellent. Make the stop and have an... More
