Lovely depiction of Bible scenes.

Must like a wax museum, but not so fake looking. About a dozen scenes. When one approaches each it lights up, audio scripture of the scene starts, and an appropriate song is... read more

Must like a wax museum, but not so fake looking. About a dozen scenes. When one approaches each it lights up, audio scripture of the scene starts, and an appropriate song is sung in the background. No pics are allowed of the scenes but are permitted of the gardens outside. Very tastefully done. Benches at each scene for those who... More

Great place to visit with the family! As a believer, it is a story I already know, but it never hurts to be reminded of what Jesus did for all of us.

After so much to do and see in this area, this is a perfect little area of peace and tranquillity. The way they depict Jesus's life is so well done and straight out of the bible. Loved this experience

Nice stop for those seeking a break from the hustle and bustle of Downtown Gatlinburg. Beautifully sculptured wax figures depicting the Passion of Christ. A Nice, Quiet, Air Conditioned break to the Gatlinburg genre. Beautiful Gardens and Great Gift Shop.

I went with 2 other adults, a 6 year old and a 1 year old and we all really enjoyed this place. I think they did a very good job of picking the scenes to showcase, and keeping each scene short to keep you moving along. Any Christian will be really appreciative of what they are doing here!

Wonderful displays, made the Bible scenes come alive.Location made parking for other activities within walking distance. The self guided tour was fast enough so as not to be tiring. Staff people were very friendly and helpful.

I loved going here! The price was not bad at all and it was very moving. The garden was amazing at the end. Once you leave here, you feel a lot better!

On a posetive note, anything about Christ is a plus. The price of admission though and what you see doesnt match up. I have no problem with earning a living off of religeon but I think they are charging a bit much in my opinion. For those not understanding of what the Bible tells, take a visit then talk to...

This is a good thing to see when in the area. Entertaining for the whole family and it was the perfect amount of sightseeing time. We walked to the aquarium afterwards. Jesus and everyone else looked very Caucasian, but that is totally okay. The artists probably looked like this depiction. People around the world make Christ look like themselves in... More

This is worth seeing once. The dioramas are a little dated and white washed, but scripture is used for each one and is worth seeing at least once. Its a nice experience and admission allows for you to park there the whole day.
