The Agnon House

Jerusalem, Israel

The Agnon House is a National Heritage Site, dedicated to the work of the writer S.Y. Agnon, the 1966 Nobel Prizewinner in Literature. Agnon and his wife Esther built this house in 1931, and he lived here until his death in 1970. The house is now a literary museum and a venue for tours, lectures, performances and workshops. Visitors are welcome to see the writer’s home, to get to know his and his family’s life, to get a taste of his enormous body of work, to capture a glimpse of his study, and to appreciate his unique contribution to contemporary Hebrew culture.
