Yigal Alon Museum is home of the Galilee Boat a great archaeological treasure. Discovered in the mud on the Sea of Galilee’s shore, scholars say this two-millennia-old vessel was a combined ferry and fishing boat, and may have been used by Jews in a sea battle against the Romans. For Christians, it recalls the stories of Jesus and his fishermen disciples.
