Kibbutz Ginosar has a museum devoted to a small fishermen boat that was found at the bottom of the Sea of Galilee in the 80's. The boat is 2,000 years old and it is beautifully preserved and displayed. There is a short video about the...More

I am reviewing the Ginosar Museum and not the village since the important and most recommended issue is this special museum. The special item is a boat dating from the days Jesus stayed in that area. The boat has been found in the water of...More
