Performed from May through October, The Great Passion Play in Eureka Springs, Arkansas is "America's #1 Attended Outdoor Drama." 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.

My family really enjoyed this play. Very moving and the scenes and actors were awesome. We also did the tour and visited the different scenes in the Bible and they were also wonderful. I would definitely visit again if I'm in the area.

Spent the day there. Was a great learning experience. The Passion Play should be on your agenda when going to Eureka Springs. Will be going back again.

The sights and sounds of The Great Passion Play are amazing! Not only is everything very well done, the play is very inspirational and brings to life the Biblical characters and events surrounding the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. A must-see for any Christian or anyone interested in learning more about Jesus and the Christian faith.

The whole atmosphere felt like reliving the last week of Christ's walk on earth. It was chilly and they rented out blankets for $1 for the play. Loved the resurrection and the ascension scenes. Enjoyed the tabernacle tour and guide. It was worth getting up early to come down for. Learned alot from it. It was wonderful being around christian... More
