In 1986 two brothers from Kibbutz Ginosar discovered a boat buried in the sand of the Sea of Galilee . . . excavators carefully uncovered the boat and eventually moved it to a museum at the kibbutz. What an amazing discovery . . . and the museum has done a spectacular job of showing us how the boat was discovered,... More

The closest to woodstock in Israel - an amazing event! I had the privilege to perform there this year - a true dream come true!

We did not stay overnight at the village, rather we took a boat ride from Tiberias over to Ginosar Village and stayed for a couple of hours. The boat museum is quite amazing. The film to see before seeing the boat, is quite fascinating. The restoration project to preserve the boat was creative and unique. Hard to believe a normal... More

We didn't stay at Ginosar Village--It looks very nice, but was out of our budget. We were driving north along the Sea of Galilee. This stop only took half an hour, but it was definitely worth it for us. We came early, just as it was opening, so as to miss the big tour groups. We walked into the room... More

Drove to Ginosar Village to see the "Jesus" boat. There is a short introductory film right next to the restored 2000 year old fishing boat discovered nearby. Not many people seemed to go to view the circular exhibit area to the left when you get in the building. This was a nice surprise. Wish we had decided to stay at... More

Tucked away in the NE corner of the Sea of Galilee ( Kinneret) is the discovery of a 2,000 year old, 30 foot wooden boat. Uncovered during an exceptional low water period, the boat was reclaimed from the seabed sediment and preserved and fully displayed at the Yigal Alon Center in Kibbutz Ginosar. It took 14 years to prepare this... More

On each of my 3 Israel tours we have visited the "Jesus boat". It is a nice museum. But be sure not to miss the gift shop, it is one of the best I have seen for Christian gifts in Israel.

the bucolic yet modern rooms and suites of Ginosar Village, its gardens and picnic tables, make it an ideal place to stay, very appropriate for families as well as couples and individuals. It's right on the Sea of Galilee, and a large Israeli breakfast is provided by the Nof Ginosar Hotel adjoining the Village. Swimming in the lake is one... More

Take the fishing boat onto the Sea of Galilee, then enjoy the museum with the first century fishing boat, film presentation, cafeteria and gift shop. Look for the small hairy man who exchanges Shekels at good rates! Worth a look.

This hotel was touted as luxury. Buffet dinners aren't luxury for me, but the food was fresh and good. The private Beach on the Sea of Galilee was lovely. The stars in this part of the world are amazing. The staff and management were first class.
