The House of Anchors Fishing Museum was established in 1995 at Kibbutz Ein Gev on the Sea of Galilee by Mendel Nun, a veteran fisherman, historian, author, and resident of Ein Gev. Nun has organized an assemblage of concepts, examples of technology, and hitherto little-known artifacts relating to the fishing industry on the Sea of Galilee from antiquity to the present. The museum collection includes such items as models of nets, net-sinkers and anchors, netting needles, and rare pictures of newly discovered ancient harbors. Relevant biblical and talmudic texts, as well as background information on the Sea of Galilee and its fish population, are also provided. Outside the museum, visitors can view a model of a first-century wooden boat. There are also demonstrations of fishermen lowering their nets, using ancient or modern techniques, visiting nearby ancient harbors, and trying their luck at throwing a cast-net or using a netting needle. In addition, visitors can take a train tour around the kibbutz. בית העוגנים עין-גב -מנדל נון מתוך כתבה של מגזין הוידאו של עמק הירדן על מוזיאון בית העוגנים ומנדל נון מייסדו. מנדל נון דייג וחוקר הכנרת.
