A small typical village located in Nazareth during the time when Jesus was alive. Recreated using tools & techniques that would have been used during this time. The villagers were dressed with clothes for that time period. A must see.

This is a recreation of Nazareth at the time Jesus lived there. Seemed very accurate and the period costumes were accurate. They are expanding the area but is very well done. Great for kids.

This was a highlight of mine from Israel. Seeing what it would've looked like when Jesus walked through. My favourite parts were the donkeys, wine press, and the spinner.

A must for Christians! A place where Mary was visited by the Angel Gabriel, where Joseph had his workshop. So where It all begins. The museum worth the entry to some of the more unusual relics found at the site. Walk thru the old market....More
