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 massive outdoor drama is incredible. It brings the story of Christ's last week on this earth to life! I hope it will continue for many more years.

Very nice. Lots of walking and stairs and people using the flash on their cameras after being told to shut them off was not good.

I loved seeing the Great Passion Play! It is an experience like no other, and no matter where you sit, there is a great view and so much to see with live animals and breathtaking scenery that just adds to the experience. We loved it and plan to come back again next year with more friends and family!

I was in the original cast of the Passion Play in 1968 and worked for them again through High School in the 70's. Since then I have been in the tour business and have booked hundreds of groups and thousands of individuals to see the Passion Play. Regardless of whether you are a Christian or not, this is a great... More

We were there in late October which was perfect because it was just chilly enough to bundle up but not too cold. Definitely something every family should experience once. Everything was prerecorded and it would... More

We did the total experience pass and the backstage tour. I am not exaggerating when I say the staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome, even arranging for us to have a special backstage tour when we missed it due to a time change (it was at the end of the season). It was amazing to... More

My life long friend and I went to the Passion Play during our recent visit to Eureka Springs. I would highly recommend it to anyone. Every seat had an exceptional view of the show and the way that each scene had its on setting made it so easy to follow. Awesome portrayal of the life of Jesus Christ. We will... More
