This small house was the home of Ben Gurion. It is free to enter. The rooms are largely laid out as when lived in. There are many photos of Ben Gurion with important figures of the day. Also on display his many awards. What most impressed me though was the substantial number of books he read. And not just politics... More

From the beautiful green tile floor to the impressive library, you will be glad you took this opportunity to gain insight into the modest life of this great man,David ben Gurion. See the movie (offered in an area adjacent to the house) first to deepen your experience. Also suggest visiting Ben Gurion's desert home and grave (Sde Boker.)

I felt it was boring. Of course Ben Gurion was a very important person for Israel, this place must be same as he left it but I don't like this kind of attractions.

Thought there would be more to this house. It's interesting to visit this simple house but not much to see. He did have a massive collection of books on many subjects.

This is the house of our first prime minister. The house shows hoe simple were the life of Ben-Gurion and Paula his wife. they lived that way as the country were on its way. You should go there and learn the simplicity of their life

I highly recommend it. We found this by mistake down a beautiful tree lined boulevard. There is a great sense of history here!

This tour was included in our trip to Israel. What we saw was that he was not into large homes. The house has been preserved as it was when he passed away. It is a meager home that had basics but little else. To us this meant he was a man of the people, he didn't want more than he... More

A very short visit, however a few really fascinating things to see - for example photos of Ben Gurion with all the key players of the world at the time, or transcripts of his (very inspirational) quotes...

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.
