Here you will see sarcophagi from the Herod Family Tomb along with other finds from Jerusalem, Nazareth, Capernaum, and elsewhere. On display are historic documents, liturgical vestments and vessels, and books, and carved remnants of the tombs of the Crusader kings of Jerusalem. There is a small entrance fee.
