Ben-Gurion House, Tel Aviv

4.5
#7 of 32 in Museums in Tel Aviv
One of the main residences of Israel’s first Prime Minister--left to the state after his passing--Ben-Gurion House now serves as a museum and memorial to Israel's founding father. Ben-Gurion lived here with his family when he wasn’t staying at the official Prime Minister’s residence in Jerusalem or his retirement home. On a free tour of the building, you can see Ben-Gurion’s humble chambers, where he wrote the final draft of Israel’s Declaration of Independence, and an array of his books, documents, photographs, and personal items.
