  • Easy to get to well laid out and very interesting. Guidance in a number of languages and facilities good  more »
  • It touches your heart seeing the humble dwelling of David Ben Gurion. No wonder he was "father of his country". You cannot have anything other than sheer respect for Ben Gurion.  more »
  • A trip back in time to visit the life of Israel's first prime minister David Ben Gurion. The house where he lived remained his legacy and reflects what life was like for a pioneer politician in a young country. Worth a visit, great place for both adults and children.
  • Great museum to learn history of Ben Gurion. Great interactive activities for the whole family. Worth the trip from anywhere in Israel!!
