Always inspirational and meaningful. Touches the heart. Started coming here when it was Christus Gardens and then it closed for awhile. So pleased that it was re-opened. The gift shop was very disappointing from previous visits and don't know why but it was the only drawback.

I have been here a few times. It takes you through the life of Christ depicted in different scenes from the bible. There is narration to go along with each scene. They also have a little garden there. Its a pretty neat place to see.

Visited with my family teens to senior adults. It is very lifelike and depicts the story of Christ very well. The gardens are very nice as well. Very memorable!

During the November fire, fire encircled the museum, but did not touch it. God saved it. Beautiful depiction of the life of Jesus. I have been many times and it always Inspires. Must see visit to the Smokies.

Unique museum about the Bible. There are "scenes" set up throughout that depicts what it might have looked like during the time of Jesus.

This is a great place and experience to share with anyone. You will learn alot, and even leave with a peaceful feeling. Took my toddler- under 2- and she enjoyed the exhibit and even was quite during the entire walk through . A must visit !

Inexpensive, not crowded, very humbling. Beautiful, most informative. Cool and comfortable. Benches to sit down and actually take in the whole scene. I would highly recommend. It was a pity this place was not packed!
