Ben Gurion Hut

Paula and David Ben-Gurion's desert home remains exactly as Ben-Gurion left it when he passed away in 1973. This was his wish as left in his will. The visitor will be introduced to Ben-Gurion as a man and as a leader and to the era in which he lived. At the explanation areas which are located at the entrance to the site, a new historical display is shown, telling about David Ben-Gurion's life and his connection to the Negev. The film was produced by new animation techniques. In the site's yard there are three activity areas on the subject of "Ben-Gurion and the Jewish National Fund", which include a sand map, two cartography maps and also a matching game with ropes. In the site there are also two activity rooms which are equipped with appropriate equipment suitable for conferences and events (projector, laptop etc.) in which a photo exhibition – "the Negev vision in the eye of the camera" is shown – people, places and fulfillment in the Negev, according to David Ben-Gurion's vision. Also, three new exhibition rooms were built which display in various ways Ben-Gurion's doctrine and characteristics.
