The exhibit is amazing, very well preserved, and the video documentary tells an amazing story. As an archeological piece, it's very impressive how they retrieved and restored it. As a historical piece, it's very thought provoking. As a potentially religious piece, it did send a...More

Well worth a visit. We eventually managed to get the English narrative on the video at the beginning. Otherwise very good. Shop expensive.

We took a boat ride on Sea of Galilee and then toured the museum. The story of the boat and seeing ti was amazing. The boat is a miracle itself.
