Although it is not quite as realistic and nice as Chritus Gardens was it is still nice to see something like this in the area. Well worth a visit and a nice choice for something to do on a rainy day.

Interesting but a little campy. You move from scene to scene and move on after a short narration. The scenes are nicely staged and the costuming is really good. I thought the gardens would be a little better but they were just average. The concave craving of Jesus face in the garden is very interesting. It appears to follow you... More

We really enjoyed this depiction. Would be especially helpful learning tool for those who are not already Christians. My 7 year old was really awe struck by the crucifix scene. I'm glad that my children were able to see the life of Jesus re inacted in this manner. It really brought the whole history to life. They used actual scriptures... More

If you have one ounce of doubt in your mind that God dosnt exist, you must see him as he watches you with his eyes.. A true biblical story you wont be sorry you felt within your heart.. A heart pounding feeling to be had..

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed Christ in the Smokies Museum. It was a great depiction of the life of Christ. I would encourage everyone to visit this museum. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

This was a bit of a disappointment. The figures were mediocre and it was a bit boring. The staff was friendly and some of the displays were intriguing but not worth seeing again to me.

This is a great family Christian experience. Mueum takes about 40 minutes. It is a self-guided tour where the exhibits light up and there is narration. Very moving. The place is cool so do not worry about heat. Recommended for kids at least 5 or over.
