This is not a must see attraction but one you should check out only if you are interested. There is much to see in the area so pick your spots wisely.

It is so exciting to see a boat that has been discovered that was probably used during the time Jesus Sailed on the Sea of Galilee. They do a wonderful job at preserving and presenting this.

30 minutes would be fine with children. You can do a quick walk through, I would try to watch the film if they are old enough to hold attention, it's not very long as I remember.
