The Gordon House Museum was established in order to create a house of nature, agriculture and knowledge. Founded in 1935, it is one of the first nature museums of its kind in Israel. The different sections of the museum provide information regarding the Sea of the Galilee area- there are artifacts from prehistoric times up until the beginning of Zionism from the Kinarot Valley, a collection of stuffed local species, films regarding the local nature and settlement of the area, archaeological displays and an area dedicated to A.D. Gordon, a pioneer, ideologue and a role model for many people in the time of the Second Aliyah. The Museum sometimes hosts changing art exhibitions too.
