Frankly I was dissappointed, the scenes are just non-movable figures with a narration, can't take any photos inside (not that you'd want to). The "gardens" are nothing more than a atrium of maybe 20' X 20' and that is it.

When we saw this in passing we didn't know what to expect. Out of interest we went to check it out, plus if you go through the museum you can park there for the entire day, free.

A humbling experience, especially since it's one street over from buying stuff and more stuff. The staff was the kindest in the area, not surprisingly. Gave us a better perspective of our family trip and certainly contributed to my deeper appreciation of the mountains and life in general.

This was an awesome exhibit. Each scene, portrayed by wax figures was amazing. The music, scripture readings and narration was great. The employees were friendly and helpful. The artwork in the garden of Christ never takes HIS eyes off you...no matter where you walk. It was incredible.

I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed this self-guided tour through the Christ in The Smokies museum that depicts the life of Christ, from His birth to His ascension. The music the readings of the scripture in the background added so much to the stories being narrated. The wax figures were so realistic that I could not help but... More

Such a simple yet amazing way of seeing the story of Christ's life. They really brought the stories to life with their depictions. My husband & I were both teary eyed at different parts of the tour, him at the crucifixion and me and the ascension! Our kids really like the way it "showed" you the stories!! We will go... More
