Museums And Culture, National Sites

Kibbutz Degania(Aleph) is Israel's first kibbutz, making it a very special and unique place. The kibbutz is located at the southern end of the Sea of Galilee(Kinneret), in what is known as the Jordan Valley and was first settled in 1910. Throughout the course of the last 100 years Kibbutz Degania has grown and become more modern but it still retains the quaint feel that makes it so special. The kibbutz now offers a chance to peer back in time to see what things were like so long ago.

On the other side of the Kibbutz, where the original settlement was built, a house for living and a stockyard for the livestock and equipment can still be seen. A small building next to the living house which was once the kitchen is now the Founders Museum and can only be entered with advanced reservation. The original settlement is very picturesque and can be explored, however some of the rooms have been converted into offices. What once was the hen-house now hosts a lovely fish and dairy restaurant serving gourmet foods in an idyllic location.
