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!

As a Christian, I am glad to see that there is a museum that is dedicated to Christianity because we lack so much of this in our country. On the other hand, it is Gatlinburg and the city seems to lend itself to trapping people for their money. After all, it is a tourist city. One of Murphy's Laws states... More

This is my first time to visit a museum of this kind.It is not just a museum. It is a place for spiritual retreat. The presentation of the story of Jesus Christ is so amazing. The gift shop adequately provides items worth keeping and giving to remind us of our Saviour Jesus Christ.

We came to Gatlinburg on a family vacation. Because where we were staying was close to the Christ Museum, we decided to make this the last stop of the day. We are so glad we did. It was absolutely wonderful. We left there filled with God's word. We returned to our bungalow relaxed and at peace.
