What to See

Clore Garden of Science
On the grounds of the Weizmann Institute is a wonderful science park that will educate and entertain young and old. The Clore Garden of Science - the museum-without-walls is an outdoor museum with interactive science exhibits. It is best enjoyed by people over the age of five.

Ayalon Institute
Just north of the city, tucked behind the shiny buildings that make up the new Science Park, is an important piece of modern Israeli history that has been hidden beneath the ground for many years. In 1946 the Haganah opened a secret underground bullet factory that produced over 2 million bullets between 1946-1948. call ahead for reservations. 08 940-6552.

The house of Abraham Dondikov, one of the founders of Rehovot, was built on the top of the hill called "Hirbat-Douran", at the beginning of Rehovot history. The restored Dondikov House operates as a gallery for temporary exhibitions of local artists. In the yard, there are few artifacts such as old Eucalyptus trees and part of the original garden wall. In the future, Dondikov House will act as a municipal museum, featuring the history of Rehovot.
