Nazareth Village, Nazareth

4.7
#1 of 28 in Tours in Galilee
Reenact the early life of Jesus at Nazareth Village, an open-air museum in the eponymous town. Aimed at reconstructing the 1st-century farm and village in Galilee, the village features a large number of traditional houses, ancient-style workshops, terrace fields, and dry stone mills. The Scottish foundation-run theme park gives a wide range of hands-on experience to visitors, just 0.5 km (0.3 mi) away from the ancient town center. Explore a Jesus-style carpentry shop or check out a good shepherd next to a pen full of sheep, which you can feed. Appropriately dressed actors keep the lore alive, demonstrating daily life some 2,000 years ago. Put Nazareth Village into our Nazareth day trip planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Our guide was wonderful. And everything was beautiful. It gave us a great look at what life during Jesus time was like, and made me understand the depth of pain He had to go through on the cross. The actors were wonderful and willing to take pictures, and we even got to have a souvenir. So awesome. Would definitely recommend it to everyone.
  • We loved this little open air museum about how life was at Jesus times. There are different places with real people dressed up like 2000 years ago, sheep and donkeys. In February the nature was beautiful green with lots of yellow flowers under the olive trees, which makes the walk very pleasant. The museum closes at 17:00, there are only guided tours, and the last one starts at 15:30, but you should book in advance if you want to be sure to be able to enter. There is a free parking available at the site.
  • This is a wonderful tour to get a flavor for what life was like in the time of Jesus. Craftsmen give demonstrations and the guide was excellent. Th grounds are lovely. One person in our group is not very steady on her feet and the steep walks and narrow steps were tough fo her. I set up tickets beforehand since the times sell out quickly. We got ours the day before but there are lots of tour groups that visit the place.
  • A must see in Nazareth - to see how things were during the time of Jesus helps bring everything to life. They have ... and are still reconstructing as well as reenacting different roles. Our guide was terrific.
  • Really enjoyed the tomb, oil & wine presses. And the nice oil lamp gift! I use it with olive oil. Nice gift shop too.
