About Us

 

 

Welcome to the Official Galilee Boat Center, Website and Online Store.

 

The Museum and Tourist Center is located in Ginosar on the western shore of the Sea of Galilee, the ancient historical and holy site of Gennesaret,

where it is written; 34 When they had crossed over, they landed at Gennesaret. 35 And when the men of that place recognized Jesus,

they sent word to all the surrounding country. People brought all their sick to him 36 and begged him to let the sick just touch the edge of his cloak, 

and all who touched it were healed. (Matthew 14:34-36).

 

We host hundreds of thousands of pilgrims each year who come to see one of the most precious and Biblical archaeological treasures in the world,

"The 2,000 Year Old Galilee Boat" or to set sail on the Sea of Galilee. Experiencing a spiritual journey, retracing the steps of Jesus in the Galilee.

At our center you can see for yourself the historic fishing boat that could have been used by Jesus and his followers,

discovered by Kibbutz members just 500 meters from our location.

 

We have a magnificent view of the entire Sea of Galilee, the Golan Heights, Mount Hermon, Tiberias and Mount Arbel.

Also visible from our location are Tabgha, Mount of Beatitudes, Capernaum, Magdala and Bethsaida.

At the Center you will also find the Yigal Allon Museum, large Gift Shop, Cafeteria, comfortable resting lobby for travellers and a boat dock.

 

Through our online store we offer people from all around the world the opportunity to purchase goods and the same unique products that we have in our store.

You can bless your loved ones with gifts such as: Special Israeli Art, Olive wood products, Dead Sea products, Judaica and more.

Each online purchase helps support local small businesses and helps maintain the Museum and its port.

 

We hope that you enjoy your visit and look forward to being of service to you.
