Brings a lot of color to the life of David Ben Gurion. Enjoyed it much. It sets the tone to much of Israels values and accomplishments.

It is definitely a must see for obvious historic reasons. Additionally, it is impressive for the simplicity of the decor and furnishing, the meaningfulness of the events that took place in between those very walls (meetings with globally relevant people) and the immense book collection.

What an interesting man! He was secular, and very proud of his Jewish heritage. Both religious and cultural aspects. Able to learn a lot about this man. He lived simply. Very very good way to spend an hour or so.
