Aside from the fact that Jesus and company looked more American than Middle Eastern, I thought it was really well done. They used Scripture along with the life sized dioramas to walk you through the life of Jesus. The only exception to that was the use of Davinci's portrayal of the Last Supper which they acknowledged was not what it... More

This is a really neat museum. It tells about Christ's life and it is really informative. The price is reasonable. The tour is about 30 minutes long. Worth the visit!

We really enjoyed and were moved by the Christ in the Smokies Museum. The exhibits are wax figures of Jesus and others and each section tells a story. Many times music is included in the scene. Was a very moving experience and we wish it could have been more in depth. Our only wish is that we would have done... More

This is a great place to go if you are a long time Christian or not at all. It tells the story by a computerized tour. The amount of time and everything was great. My 2 yr old stayed interested and it was inspiring and touching. Loved the prayer garden and lifelike scenes. Nice things in the gift shop. We... More

Wow! What can I say, I was skeptical at first, when my bride of 34 years wanted to visit. Am very glad we did. Beautiful scenes of life of Christ. Well portrayed. Uplifting experience.

The life and ministry of Jesus is depicted in scenes with music and narration. Each scene is vividly created and really gripped my heart. The garden is serene and the face of Jesus following you is awesome. You can park for free all day. Great experience.
