Ancient Boat Museum

On the coast of the Sea of Galilee is the Ancient Boat Museum. Here, on display, is a boat that was recovered from the first century. Seriously. To see a boat this old, one very similar to what Jesus may have sailed in is an odd and awe-inspiring experience. We spent a while here, watching videos of the excavation of the boat and admiring the boat in and of itself. And hey, if you're a shopper - or just want to play around with some of the shofars (ram horns) on display, there's a little gift shop in here as well. For us, this was just a quick stop before heading on to more exciting activities!
