After Agnons death, the former mayor of Jerusalem Mordechai Ish-Shalom initiated the opening of his home to the public. In the early 1980's, the kitchen and family dining room were turned into a lecture and conference hall, and literary and cultural evenings were held there. In 2005, the Agnon House Association in Jerusalem renovated the building, which reopened in January 2009. The house was designed by the German-Jewish architect Fritz Korenberg, who was also his neighbor.
His home in Talpiot, built in 1931 in the Bauhaus style, was turned into a museum, Beit Agnon.
Located at 16 Klausner Street in Old Talpiyot (Arnona) in Jerusalem.
