The Moshava Kinneret Museum is located on Moshava Kinneret ("moshava" means "rural village") in a building that once served as a clinic. This building was where the residents of the village and farm that went by the same name, as well as residents of the surrounding settlements would receive medical care.
The Museum was opened in 1988 by the Kinneret Local Council and presents the history of the first Jewish settlements in the area, in particular Moshava Kinneret. In the courtyard of the museum visitors can take a look at farming implements that date back to the early twentieth century. Inside the museum, the exhibits reflect different aspects of the lives of the pioneers; work, health, education, security and public events. There is also an area devoted to artists from the region, including the poet Rachel.
