Ben-Gurion's hut (Hebrew: צריף בן גוריון‎, Tzrif Ben Gurion) was the retirement home of Israeli Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion and his wife Paula (Pola) from 1953 until Ben-Gurion's death in 1973. The "hut", located on kibbutz Sde Boker, was preserved exactly as it was left by Ben-Gurion and now serves as a museum with a visitor's center operated by the Ben-Gurion Heritage Institute.

  • 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!!
