Weizmann House provides an inside perspective on the life of Israel's first president, Dr. Chaim Weizmann. The house once served as the president's actual home, originally built in 1936 and designed by famous architect Erich Mendelsohn. The tour starts with a film highlighting the goals and visions of Weizmann. See his presidential car, a classic Ford Lincoln Cosmopolitan, given to him by Henry Ford II. Explore the surrounding garden, which features the resting site for Weizmann and his wife. For more details, visit the archive library, which contains over 200,000 documents, photos, letters, newspaper articles, and more.

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.
