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. The longest time walking at any one stop is approximately thirty minutes. « less

This presentation portrays Christ's last days on earth and gives a powerful resurrection and ascension display. It is very moving and inspiring.

Wonderful play, tours and buffet. The free show before the play was great also. Also enjoyed the tabernacle & holy land tour. Great to be surrounded by christian volunteers.

The energy of the performers was fantastic. One could easily spend an entire day enjoying all of the attractions culminating with the play. Our Grandchildren were enthralled by the animals in addition to the story of Christ's passion.

Made me feel like I was seeing Christ when he was walking on the earth. I think I got a feeling as to what it would have been like to actually see Him.

We visited the Passion Play for the first time in a few years. Another great performance and a great message delivered again. The only downside is the 85 steps if you go down to the first row.

I made my first visit to the Great Passion Play in June and it was a very blessed experience even in somewhat rainy conditions. Very well presented in a beautiful setting (and also a very good meal before the performance).
