Very moving presentation

This was by far the highlight of my trip. It kept to the scriptures and if you're looking for something spiritual to do in the area, this is a Do Not Miss. It was also affordable

We thoroughly enjoyed the visit here. It is located right behind the Gatlinburg Inn, where we stayed. It is a self-guided tour. You go into one room and the wax figures seem real and there is a story in each room. When it's over, the lights fade out, the door opens and you go into the next room. It was... More

Been in the area many times but hadn't visited until today. Very impressed with the life like statues in all the scenes. Goes through the entire life of Christ through him ascending to Heaven accompanied with corresponding verses. Perfect for both adults and children. Very reasonably priced.

I went once when I was there but did not get to enjoy it like I wanted to because I was with a group. If you are a religious per son you should go. Even if you are not a religious you should go. The figures are so life like and you realy get an idea of Christ life.

We enjoyed the museum. It had a good representation of the life of Jesus. Also I like they had some biblical times artifacts. Gift shop had nice and affordable souvenirs.

I have family who lived in Gatlinburg years ago, and I have known of this attraction for a very long time. Today was my first time to visit. I was not disappointed. The life-sized scenes from the life of Jesus were well-done, and representative of the many events from the Gospels. The narrative was well done, and the characters in... More

Although it does not look like much from the outside, the artwork is amazing and extensive! Check out the evil-looking Satan - just as I imagined he would be. The Jesus face in the garden moves with you as you walk. I have never seen anything like it. FYI - The parking is a little far from the other attractions... More

This is a wonderful place to visit. All day parking for $5, and it's all indoors in case it's raining. The staff was extremely friendly as well.
