Ben-Gurion Hut reviews
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!!
