Weizmann House

 

Weizmann House

 

For an insider's view into the life of one of Israel's foremost figures, come visit 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.
 

 

Clore Garden of Science

 

 

 
 
Want to make waves? Play rock-music? View full-circled rainbows - by day or even by night? The Clore Garden of Science is about making these goals, some seemingly impossible, come true. It's also about exploring science in a unique environment.
 
Come experience what it's like to walk on the moon at the TrampoLuna, which "shaves off" over 80 percent of one's normal weight, and investigate the science behind diverse natural phenomena. Including over 50 large-scale exhibits, the Garden is sure to leave a lasting impression on children - ages 6 to 90.
 
The Clore Garden of Science is part of the Davidson Institute of Science Education, which leads, coordinates and operates the educational activities of the Weizmann Institute of Science.
