If you love your Savior Jesus Christ, you will love Christ in the Smokies. It used to be Christus Gardens. Christ in the Smokies is a walk through tour that is narrated as the lights lead you in to the next scene. It is very nice.

I informed them I would be bringing several wheelchair bound people. They told me no problem. When I arrivied I found... More

If you want to know about the Bible, you get to see it here in several scenes and you also get to see some historical artifacts.

A very nice presentation of truly the greatest story of all time. Would be great for a large or small group, but not ideal for young children. Very short wait the day we visited, but if you have a group, you'd probably be best to reserve a time.

This was done very well. You go to several different views of the Life of Christ, starting with His birth. They let you park for the day for free as long as you go through the museum or you pay $5 for the day. Look in coupon books to get $1 off per person or go to the Biblical Times... More

This attraction takes about 45 minutes to go thru. It is set up where each scence tells a part of the story of christ and the scenes are wax figures which are well done. Very beautifully set up and maintained. Garden was nothing exceptional just one small room but nice. No photography is allowed inside.

Moving from room to room to music and Bible narration, this is beautifully done. Each scene is like a really well-done wax museum telling the entire story of the life of Christ. Garden was lovely, and there are some artifacts, too.

Gorgeous museum. Beautiful display and narration of the life of Jesus Christ. Enjoyed our time. Wish it was possible to enjoy the tour repeatedly, once admission to museum is paid.

The staff was nice going in, but I guess once they get your money that is where it ends. We walked to our vehicle and found that the battery was dead. My brother and brother-in-law walked back in and asked if anyone could help us by giving us a jump. Their response?? "No, maybe someone will come along that will... More
