Overview
More
Performed from May through October, The Great Passion Play in Eureka Springs, Arkansas is "America's #1 Attended Outdoor Drama." Since 1968, the Play has been seen by over 7.7 Million people from all over the world. The Play is performed beneath the night sky by a cast of around 150 actors and many live animals as well. Our hope and prayer is to make the Scriptures come alive! THE BIBLE MUSEUM is open every day except Sunday, 10:00am until 5:00pm. On days of Play performances, the Museum is open until 8:00pm (7:00pm after Labor Day). SACRED ARTS MUSEUM - Open every day before the Play from 11:00am - 8:00pm (after Labor Day until 7:00pm). Non-play days by appointment. THE HOLY LAND TOUR - a two-and-a-half-hour to three-hour guided tour. Guests are transported back in time as they walk through a full-sized replica of the East Jerusalem Gate and Marketplace to Biblically inspired exhibits which include Moses' Tabernacle in the Wilderness, Bethlehem Inn and the Nativity, the Upper Room, the Garden Tomb, the Walk with Peter, and other exhibits which depict life in Bible times. All exhibits have been researched archaeologically and historically for authenticity. Tours run on day of Play performances from 12:00pm-4:00pm. There is walking at each stop. The longest time walking at any one stop is approximately thirty minutes. During days the Play is not performed, we also have special guided tours of the Holy Land, backstage area, and lunch. These tours happen throughout the year every day but Sunday. Advanced reservations are required for these off-season tours.

Our family had an awesome time at the Passion Play. My wife was blown away by the tabernacle teaching. It looks like the park may have been short staffed as not all of the Bible tour stations were open as they were in the past....More

There were a few things that made me uneasy at this performance. The first was during the introduction the host made reference to "other theaters" and their ticket prices are "much higher" than The Great Passion Play. I did not think that it was necessary...More

We attended a performance of The Great Passion Play during a long weekend trip to Eureka Springs. It was an outstanding performance and a must see for anyone visiting the area. We were simply in awe.

My wife and enjoyed the play thoroughly. There were live animals, a very large cast and great affects at times. We'll definitely do this again.

What an amazing production. It's impossible to pick a highlight because the entire thing was just amazing. Was a quick walk from the motel down the road, the sunset was the backdrop of the play and the buffet was just delicious.
