For an insider`s view into the life of one of Israel`s foremost figures, come visit The Weizmann House, home of Dr. Chaim Weizmann, first President of the State of Israel and founder of the Institute. With a view of the sea on one side and the Judean Hills on the other, the house was designed by the famous Jewish architect Eric Mendelsohn, and built between the years 1936-37.
Fine chinaware, an extensive and lavishly furnished library, and even a swimming pool, modest by today`s standards but perhaps an extravagance of fancy for its era, await visitors to this historical landmark.
The visit includes a short screening of A King without a Kingdom, which describes Weizmann`s efforts on behalf of the Zionist movement.
According to his wishes, he was buried on the Institute grounds, close to the house that he loved.
