Since 1968, the Play has been seen by over 7.7 Million people from all over the world. The Play is performed beneath the night sky by a cast of around 150 actors and many live animals as well. Our hope and prayer is to make the Scriptures come alive! THE BIBLE MUSEUM is open every day except Sunday, 10:00am until 5:00pm. On days of Play performances, the Museum is open until 8:00pm (7:00pm after Labor Day). SACRED ARTS MUSEUM - Open every day before the Play from 11:00am - 8:00pm (after Labor Day until 7:00pm). Non-play days by appointment. THE HOLY LAND TOUR - a two-hour guided tour. Guests are transported back in time as they walk through a full-sized replica of the East Jerusalem Gate and Marketplace to Biblically inspired exhibits which include Moses' Tabernacle in the Wilderness, Bethlehem Inn and the Nativity, the Upper Room, the Garden Tomb, the Walk with Peter, and other exhibits which depict life in Bible times. All exhibits have been researched archaeologically and historically for authenticity. Tours run on day of Play performances from 12:00pm-4:30pm leaving every 30 minutes. There is walking at each stop. The longest time walking at any one stop is approximately thirty minutes. « less

This way exceeded my expectations. I was so impressed. The cast is huge, the set is huge, the animals are real. It takes place in so many different locations, which is wonderful because each 'house' or 'area' is set just for that. We sat in the front row, and I would sit there again. It was like our own showing.... More

Good cast,good costumes, good sound level-could hear eveything well, followed the Bible. They have added chairs since we were there 25 years ago, so you don't have to carry cushions.

Program was very good. Lots of actors to tell the Story of Jesus. The walk through the bible was very good too but longer than an hour.

It was amazing and very well done. It would be best if you could sit close but even sitting up higher you still felt like you were back in the day of Jesus's time.

I had seen this 30 years ago. I had the pleasure of taking my husband to see this. He is a new Christian and He and I totally enjoyed seeing the bible presented in this beautiful way. When Jesus "disappeared" I was blown away!!! Everyone should see this as often as possible1

As a first time visitor, I had only a general idea of what to expect, but from the first scene, I was drawn into the story and the emotional involvement grew throughout the presentation. The portrayal of the devil was well done and reminded us of his involvement in the story and that he is the source of temptation, even... More

It was a great experience. I took my 9 year old grandson and he was captivitated. He said his favorite part was when Jesus raised the little boy from the dead. It is a good family experience one that all ages will enjoy. In this day and time when there is so much attracting our attention it is good to... More

Don't miss the "Great Passion Play". My grandchildren loved seeing the animals in the play and it helped make the sacrifice Christ made more real to all of us.
