    Haim Weizmann was an important man for the history and the independence of modern Israel, and your home reflects your personality and leadership.

    Chaim Weizmann was born in the Russian Empire (now his native village is a part of Belarus). He studied and worked in Europe, being a scientist-and bought land for their money for their future home on the territory of the future of Israel. Around the House is a beautiful green area of the Weizmann Institute (lawns, avenues, children's Park, Science Centre visitors). Those who are interested to know about the life of the first President of Israel, so it will be interesting. Those who do not want to be limited to the audioguide-advise notify in advance the Museum's workers, so they invited their Russian-speaking guide (which is not always the case).

    Very interesting visit for the whole family. House of the first president of the State of Israel, Chaim Weizmann, and the founder of the Weizmann Institute of Science. Nice house and grounds, and Chaim Weizmann's car is also on the grounds inside a temperature/humidity-controlled glass enclosure. Arrange for a visit via the Weizmann's Visitors Center. Afterwards (or before), take a walk around the Weizmann Institute campus -- one of the nicest and well-kept university campuses around.
