Ben-Gurion's Hut

Ben-Gurion’s hut was the retirement home of David Ben-Gurion, the first prime minister of Israel, and his wife Paula from 1953 until his death in 1973. The “hut”, located in Sde Boker, a kibbutz in the Negev, in southern Israel, was preserved exactly as it was left by Ben-Gurion after his death, and now serves as a museum with a visitors’ center operated by the Ben-Gurion Heritage Institute.
