  • 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.
  • Interesting place well maintained.
