A must see in Gallilee. This antiquity was discovered in 1986. It was removed and restored and now stands in the Galilee Miracles Centre. There is an interactive presentation with a movie as well as the actual restored boat on display

A great place to gain insight into Jesus life around the Galilee area. The ancient boat provides a worthwhile artefact to visit I would recommend a trip onto the lake on one of the many your boats. Great views. Great experience. Great fun

This is an okay stop but nothing special. There is a lot to see in the area so don’t spend too much time here.

Have visited a number of times with groups and each time is a fascinating visit. Well set out and full of interesting information I recommend a visit....made even more special by a sail on the Sea of Galilee itself.
