Ben Gurion House is a historic museum in Tel Aviv which was the secondary residence of Israel’s first Prime Minister, David Ben Gurion, between the years of 1931 and 1968. Today, the house and all its remains are intact, including the impressive library of Ben-Gurion, with over twenty-thousand books in Hebrew, English, Latin, Greek, and other languages. Today, the house serves as an institute for research for the general public. At the second floor, visitors can really catch a glimpse into his private world. The first floor includes the kitchen, Paula’s room, and his daughter’s room, which was used as a bomb shelter during the Sinai Campaign and the Six-Day War.
