This is off the main roads but worth finding. A donation is requested but not demanded. History is given by attendant who was very friendly. I was told the hours are 10:00 to 13:00 and not until 14:00 as posted here.
This was one of the coolest things we did in Israel. I highly recommend it for anyone visiting Nazareth.
