This is a must see for all Christians, Jews and Muslims. Unfortunately most tours to Nazareth don't stop here probably because they can't move you in and out as fast as they'd like to. Demand the stop. You need about an 1 1/2 hours because the must see hour long multimedia presentation is outstanding. It takes place as you move... More

The International Mary Nazareth Center was an unexpected gem -- it is a French Christian ecumenical institute meant to draw people in to the story of Mary, of Nazareth, and the Christian faith. I visited at the end of a long day of touring, not expecting to be impressed. However, the manager at my guest house had strongly recommended I... More

The staff at the International Mary Center go beyond all expectations to share their gorgeous building, the stunning views from the rooftop chapel, and a multi-media presentation about Jesus of Nazareth and the Christ of faith. Immediately as you enter the Center, you are above the excavations of several first century homes. It's not hard to imagine that you are... More

To be very honest, we walked in here out of curiosity more than anything else but were totally blown away by the experience. The highlight is of course the hour long multimedia show, spread over 4 rooms which uses 3D projection and surround sound to tell the story of the Bible from The Creation to the Resurrection. That aside, you'll... More

Great view of the city from the roof garden. Extremely pleasant staff. Their efforts deserve more visitors especially since they function on donations.

In the beggining I was a bit sceptical about the high-tec multimedia show that this center provides. But I was amazed, I really liked it, even if you are a non-believer, this show helps to gain a cultural understandingnof hebrew and christian cultures, you can experience the life of Nazareth , the essence of the Holy Land in a multidimentional...

Free, but donations welcome, and I believe they deserve a nice donation. Very well introduced by staff, welcoming, and the gardens on the top terrace were very peaceful and had amazing views of Nazareth, although the top terrace area itself could use a little better upkeep and TLC, but nonetheless my kids ages 8, 4, and 2 had a great...

Our tour party had booked lunch here and we found both the welcome and the food to be top notch. Outside dining provides a respite from the hustle and bustle of modern Nazareth. Must plug the gift shop too: a chance to buy souveniers knowing that your cash goes towards a worthy cause. Ecumenical in outlook and so a shaft... More
