Ben-Gurion House, Tel Aviv

(4.4/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Ben-Gurion House at the forefront of your travel plans using our Tel Aviv vacation builder.

  • A beautifully kept house filled with history of this incredible man! The upstairs is such a surprise! Well worth the visit! 
  • בית כמו שבית היה פעם בתל אביב. אוסף הספרים, מתנות ומכתבים של בן גוריון, מרשים מאוד. הבית שמור כאילו עדיין מישהו באמת גר שם. הייתי עם חברים מחו"ל, מאוד התלהבו וגם אני. כדאי 
  • is not a place private and known by visitors, but an important site for Jews and Israelites
