The only thing here is the Jesus Boat--obviously (I hope) probably not Jesus's boat but called that because the time period is correct. Excellently displayed with interesting video explanation. Worth a stop. Good gift shop, small counter selling juice, coffee, snacks, etc., restrooms 2 shekels

An excavation for the Israel Department of Antiquities and Museums found a 2,000-year-old boat that had been buried in the Sea of Galilee’s clay bottom. Great museum.

This museum displays a fishing boat from the time of Jesus. The boat has a wonderful exhibit showing the boats discovery, recovery, and restoration. Well worth the detour!

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.
