Ben-Gurion's Desert -Home

Visiting Ben-Gurion's Desert Home-free admittance on Fridays and Saturdays

David Ben-Gurion was Israel’s first prime minister and the national founding father or the state of Israel. On May 14th, 1948, Ben-Gurion formally proclaimed the establishment of the state of Israel, in the hall of independence in Tel Aviv.
In 1953 Ben-Gurion decided to resign from office and move to Kibbutz Sde Boker in the Negev with his wife Paula, becoming members of the new Kibbutz. Ben-Gurion believed Sde Boker was a “pioneering enterprise”, which fulfilled his Zionist vision to settle the Negev and “make the desert bloom".

Today Ben-Gurion's Desert Home is a heritage-tourist site, with many exhibitions, and the main attraction is David and Paula's living home, which we preserve almost as they left it.
