“BenGurion house, Tel Aviv centre”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

Very authentic.
Rather spartan. But we are talking round 1950s.
Very pleasent house with lots of memorabilia.
Not too much explanations.
Tricky area to park a car.
Near public transport, so easy to get to.

“Simple but historical”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

David Ben-Gurion was a simple man and so was his home, its his library that was fascinating to me. I learned so much about Ben-Gurion and his family and his entire life that I felt very knowledgeable about his life and accomplishments. Not to be missed attraction to get a real feel for the man who loved Israel and had a dream.

“visited while in school and hope nothing changed -”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

as Mr, David Ben Gurion does not create any news since Dec. 73
I pass by many times as it is a main road but walk or drive slower - respecting this man,
his luck was that he lived those days and succeeded
our bad luck - he is not in power today !

“Modest home of a great man”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

The two things I was struck by in this house is its modest scale considering that the owner was a world-class leader; and the relatively large size of his library. All is nicely preserved so that you expect him to walk in at any moment. There's not much to distinguish it from any other house on that block. Walking distance from most beach-front hotels. A step back in history.
