We've been wanting to visit for a while, and finally got the chance. It is a scene by scene story about Jesus Christ, and it was very impacting for myself, 7 year old, and husband. Can't wait to go back and take my teens.

This was a beautiful reminder of what my faith is based on, my Savior Jesus. I loved how they follow each scene with scriptural back up. This history and relics shown in the museum was fascinating. I hope to return and take my family.

We've been to different biblical museums but this has a unique take. Regardless of your beliefs, this will move you and make you think. It is simple yet so well done.

Honestly, I expected it to be some sort of venue where they turn Jesus into a novelty and sell Him out. Quite the contrary. I was impressed. A little over-priced, in my opinion. And the gift shop was more like a condensed version of Lifeway...More
