A modest home for what many would consider the founder of Israel. The most surprising thing is how ordinary the home is compared to the excesses of contemporary Politicians. David Ben Gurion didn't get into politics for self gain. This was a man with a...More

Great insight into David Ben Gurion. Explore the extensive library upstairs. A mini museum that's always worth revisiting.

Apart from the 1939s Bauhaus architecture, this is one of the few reminders of Tel Aviv's historical past. Ben Gurion was born in Poland and moved to Israel when he was 20. He was thrown out and moved to the USA where he met his...More
