We heard wonderful things about Ein Yael for younger children only to finally arrange a tour and be completely disappointed. The place is not child friendly. Carriages are difficult to navigate. There is zero options to even purchase a water bottle and we were not given a warning about this. We communicated with them on multiple occasions by phone and email and not once did they say oh bring your own drinks. It was extremely hot and uncomfortable and the adults and kids were irritable without drinks. The grounds are not well maintained and are quite dirty. Wrappers all over the place (obviously not from snacks sold there). Half our group left early after pita break making and did not stay for the weaving because they were dehydrated. Also it is very difficult to get a taxi there so arrange with your ride there to come back. I would only go well prepared with snacks and drinks and on an early tour. Not Monday when it is hot. Teaches the kids what life was like 2000 years ago. You see some bathes and floors and tunnels of homes from then.

Good place- many activities.

There is a good amount of hands-on activities, demonstrations, exhibits and performances (most recreating ancient times) at this place. It is best for children age 10 and younger- very good for them. There is of course walking to the different areas, and it is not too stroller friendly (surprising given the target age here)....

There is a good amount of hands-on activities, demonstrations, exhibits and performances (most recreating ancient times) at this place. It is best for children age 10 and younger- very good for them. There is of course walking to the different areas, and it is not too stroller friendly (surprising given the target age here). The cost is reasonable and the guides- mostly native Russian speakers working in Hebrew- are good and very friendly and knowledgable and enthusiastic. Parking leaves something to be desired. I recommend this!

Always a great activity for kids. They get to do hands on activities such as basket weaving, wine pressing, making bricks, creating beautiful mosaics etc... the staff is very friendly and helpful and gave us a great tour of the grounds.

Lots of activities for the kids

This was not the most impressive place at first glance but turned out to be a lot of fun for the kids. They had archery, basket weaving, pottery, a petting zoo and lots of other activities for the kids. Signage was not so clear so it was a little confusing getting around. Also, not everyone guiding the activity spoke English, but it was not a big issue. Great fun for the kids.
