I very much enjoy the tour but it was t what I expected. Different stages set up and you walked thru and listened to the highlights of the life of Christ. I think the price for entry was a little high for what the offered.

My wife and I enjoyed our visit to the museum. There are a lot of old and interesting artifacts and information besides the life size scenes. It is a self guided tour and you can take your time looking at all of the displays. The gardens were beautiful and peaceful but small.

Projector was not working . They apologized and offer us to walk thru the museum but had to come back later n the day after the equipment was fixed. This was not a option as this was our last day there. They provided a refund (happily). Would have preferred a discounted price since we would nt be able to see... More

This is such an amazing place to go & to relive the life of Jesus. The wax figurines are truly life like. The statue of the face of Jesus is amazing as no matter where you move the eyes follow you. A great museum to visit for all ages.

My husband, our 4-1/2 yr old son and I enjoyed our visit. We had visited once before but it was our son's first time. It completely kept his attention, which is no easy feat!!! I feel like it is something he will long remember.

This attraction is very worthwhile if you're in Gatlinburg, TN. You will be able to follow the life of Jesus Christ from birth to Ascension. Each scene is beautifully recreated with some of the most amazing wax figures. You hear a narrative from Gods Word while you are transported to a manger in Bethlehem and to a hill named Golgotha,...

Such a great place to go and see scenes from the Bible in a way you've not seen them before. The people are friendly and the displays are great. You have the option of sitting down while listening to what the tape is saying about the scene or standing, that is great for those are tired from walking. If you... More

I so wanted this to be a great attraction, but it is not. It was built 50 years ago and has not been updated since. Yes, it tells the accurate story of Christ, but with today's technology and movable mannequins, this could be so much more!

It's a tour, that is recorded and lit. You travel with a small group. Go early and even take the trolley there.
