"The Ancient Boat" Museum

is a hands-on museum and educational center at the Igal Alon house. The museum offers a varied world of colors, sounds, sights and experiential activities. Various exhibits display early settlement in the Galilee, a memorial room dedicated to Igal Alon, a well-loved Israeli hero, and an impressive exhibit of an ancient boat, which has been conclusively dated to the fateful first century A.D. – the time of Jesus and the Great Revolt of the Jews against the Romans. The story of the 2000 year-old boat's discovery and preservation is depicted in films, photos and animation, while the amazing boat itself is presented in the main museum hall.
