We went to Christ in the Smokies last year and had a wonderful experience. The staff was very friendly and nice. The museum and gardens were beautiful. I was very impressed by the detail in the figures. Very worth going again.

A couple of the scenes were moving (such as Christ's crucifixion and his ascension to Heaven), but as a whole it did not live up to the glowing recommendations. Admission is overpriced,... More

Kids will just get bored, but the adults will like it. The art here is really good though. My parents love this place.

This little museum has a very inspirational tour that will leave you emotional. The gardens are nice and feature a carving of Jesus that is carved so that it watches you no matter where you stand. This place offers a nice quite respit from the busy day.

I came here as a kid and later when first married when it was Christus Gardens. Now we were able to bring our teenage sons. It is still great and heartfelt. We really are impressed.

This is a nice quite spiritual oasis in the middle of town. The scenes depicted are well done. Even the background music is soothing. Having a place to pause and thing about spiritual things is nice.
