Waaaayyyy better than the Hollywood Wax Museum! The textures and colors of the figures are lifelike, the robes and clothing are spot on...wow. Now for the overall experience...assuming that religion doesn't offend you, this is an awesome way to spend an hour of your life...an abbreviated but detailed account of Christ's life from birth to the ascending in narrated still...

What a beautiful and inspiring place to visit during Christmas. Exterior was awesome and were told that 1 man decorates the whole grounds. You will enjoy visiting the reason for the season. Lots of lights and displays and easy to see the illumination from the Gatlinburg strip.

Took my family on our last vacation. I was hoping it wasn't going to move me to tears, but it did. The recreations and stages are spot on. The pace of the tour gave enough time for reflection and self thought. I hope this place stays in business and does not have to succumb to high prices of entertainment. This... More

This 45 minute recorded tour leads you from room to room as you follow the timeline of Christ from birth to resurrection. It is completely scripture based and sites the passages that relate to the displays. The displays are still life and maybe wouldn't be as educational and attention grabbing to children as they are to adults. The self-guided tour... More

My wife and I are both Seminary trained Ordained ministers and we loved this place. It was a 45 minute guided tour that was very Biblically accurate. The art inside was amazing. The was great too.

Every time me and my wife visit Gatlinburg this is our first stop. We absolutely love it the attention to detail is awesome, and the hospitality of those who work there is very Christlike. I am all about the gospel of Jesus Christ and this is what I see every time I go through it never gets old. And it... More

You will be inspired by each exhibit that tells the life of Jesus Christ. Very well done and worth every penny of admission. Spend some time in quiet meditation and make sure you see the eyes of Jesus as they follow you every where you go!
