Bet Bialik--literally "the house of Bialik--was the residence of the poet laureate of modern Hebrew, Chaim Nachman Bialik--now transformed into a museum. Although the house dates back to the early 20th century, it remains an architectural wonder of gracious living from the early days of...More

This is a remarkable little museum - the house where Bialik lived from 1924-34. It is a beautiful house in its own right, and the history of Bialik's work is intrinsic to an understanding of the development of Israel. Do collect a free guidebook at...More

Went with my 26 years old daughter. I must come back a lone. The amount of history is fascinating. I liked it a lot. You need 3hours to take it in all.

Even if one doesn't Bialik and never read any of his books the visit of his house is highly recommended.Such a beautiful mansion in the heart of the original first quarters of Tel Aviv.

We went to this small, well kept museum by chance. We wanted to visit the Bauhaus museum across the street, which was closed. We were not disappointed to see instead the Bialik house, a very interesting architectural gem. An English guide is available at the...More

Beit Bialik is a lovely place on a lovely street. However, there's absolutely no translations on the plaques throughout the house. If you want to have an English explanation, you get a dog-eared, sad booklet that you have to return when you're done. I strongly...More
