#8 of 52 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.

  • Really nice place for visiting but because the place maybe you wouldn’t find parking but for me it was no problem
  • Very informative historical site! Seeing Ben Gurion's house is usually not a top 5 attraction in tel aviv but it' s deffenately a must! Dont forget to ask for the free audio tour. You wont understand anything if you go without it.
  • Israels first priminstor used to live in a very small and modest house you can go there on a tour to hear about his stroy and Israels history. intresting.
  • Well kept, very interesting lectures. Should be more attractive to younger generations in order to preserve the Israeli history.
  • So much history! Remarkable (And free!)
