  • Awesome place, run by very nice and friendly people. great place to watch interesting film with cool effects about life of Marry. spectacular view of the old market from the top. 
  • מתאים גם לקבוצות וגם למשפחות מספר לנו על הסטוריה ישנה מאוד שמכרים אותם רק בבית מרים הבנלאומי כדאי לבקר גם מסביב למקום 
  • For believers or not is a place that evokes the story enhances the spirituality that is in all of us and understand that however someone. and sacrificed for ideals that should be common to all human beings.

  • Been there saw it from outside. Very close to the nazereth old market. Looks like an impressing house. Next time we'll come in the open hr's to visit.
  • Mary of Nazareth International center presents a set of high resolution movies on the life of Mary and Jesus in a nice and modern complex. During the creation of the center interesting antiquities were uncovered, including first century remains, of possibly the neighbors of Mary of Nazareth.
  • A lovely presentation, and very modern and unique with state of the art technology. Was expecting something boring, and it turned out to be the opposite.
  • Superb home. A beautiful recreation of the life of Mary
