Experience the Campus
Since its establishment in 1934 in Rehovot, Israel, the Weizmann Institute of Science has grown into one of the foremost centers of multidisciplinary research and graduate study in the world. With a 2,700-strong scientific community in a garden-like 280-acre campus, it fulfills Dr. Chaim Weizmann’s vision that it be a place of peace, collaboration, and scientific excellence. Our discoveries have improved the everyday quality of life of millions of people worldwide. You are welcome to explore the campus at your own pace. Learn more about our history, architecture, and landmarks. And see what inspires us every single day.

Sussman Family Building for Environmental Sciences
The first overtly “green” building on campus was, appropriately enough, the Sussman Family Building for Environmental Sciences.
The Archimedes Screw is one of the oldest of all machines and every generation discovers it afresh, just as they enjoy the original “Eureka!” moment when the legendary Greek scholar first grasped the principle of the up thrust on a floating body.
Built in 1936, Dr. Chaim Weizmann’s house at the Institute was designed by Erich Mendelsohn, a leading
architect of the inter-war period who also created the Einstein Tower in Potsdam and the Hadassah Hospital
on Mt. Scopus in Jerusalem.
