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-and-a-half-hour to three-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-4:00pm. There is walking at each stop.

My parents, daughters, and I recently visited the Passion Play. We had a wonderful time. We participated in the Holy Land tour. They said the tour would take 2 hours, but we spent 4 hours on it. We got to listen to Moses, Jarius's daughter, and the woman at the well. We saw the inn and stable at Bethlehem, and... More

Tour is around 2 1/2 hrs with everyone dressed as if we were actually in the Holy Land. Very short walking time with the rest riding on a... More

A wonderful amphitheater nestled in a wooded valley with a beautiful full scale set from city, to the tomb to the resurrection. A traditional adaptation of the greatest story ever told about the life and death and rebirth of Jesus Christ.

As a young child my parents brought us all the way from Jackson Mississippi to eureka springs to see the great passion play and visit the christ of the Ozarks. I'll admit that before I came I wasn't sure I would enjoy this trip. However, now that I've been 4 different times I must say this is a life changing... More
