David Ben-Gurion was not only a statesman but also a scholar, going through the house and seeing the vast amount of books which he read all of of them one can wonder when did he have time to create a country , build an army build...

Besides the nicely presevred house and its facilities, which reflect in quite a genuine manner the personality of David Ben Gurion, there is also a small multimedia pavillion where you can watch a short, but touching movie (in several languages) about this great man and his time. The regular guided tours (for the groups of 10 and more) are in... More

David Ben Gurion's House has been maintained much as when he lived there. There are photos, belongings and a phenomenal library. It gives a fascinating glimpse into the politician and the man

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.
