Please know that we have recently changed the name of our museum to BIBLICAL HISTORY CENTER. We wanted a clearer name to depict who we are and what exactly we do. Nothing else about the museum has changed aside from our name. We are currently in the process of switching over the TripAdivsor page information. Please bare with us as we make that transition.** Our mission at the Biblical History Center is to help people experience the ancient biblical world, its history, and culture. We have an Archaeological Replica Garden with life-size replicas of archaeological digs including a typical house, Roman step theater, goat hair tent, tombs, and more. Our Biblical Life Artifacts Gallery houses 250 artifacts from Israel and is one of seven of its kind in the world! We also have fun activities available for kids and teens. Reservations are required for most activities.

For those interested in the history of the Jews, this is a must see. It is a walk through the ancient days of Israel as presented to my knowledge, no where else. A great way to spend the day if you are in the area.

Saw this place on Trip Advisor for things to see in LaGrange. It is a very interesting place, although much smaller than we had hoped for the $15 admission fee. Would probably have been more interesting had we went on a guided tour and had the meal. There was a group of older ladies that had done both and seemed... More

Thanks for your review! We do recommend making a reservation ahead of time so that you can have a tour guide. There's nothing quite like having one of our guides explain to you what you're seeing and hearing (and sometimes smelling!). When you come again, give us a call at 706-885-0363 to set up your booking. It'll be an entirely... More

I found this on trip advisor when my husband and I were looking for something to do today, to enjoy the first cool-ish Saturday we have had. We live about 40 minutes away, and felt that was a reasonable drive. This place had SO much to see and learn, even before you got in the front doors. We didn't arrange... More

It was pretty boring straight from the get-go. My husband and I also felt like we weren't welcomed there because we were gay. I wouldn't suggest this place to anyone.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the Biblical History Center. The tour guide for very informative regarding the Biblical accounts of each section of the Center. I would suggest going at a time when the temperature is not extremely hot. The temperature was pushing 100 degrees when we went. The museum was very interesting and air conditioned. The gift shop...

Thank you! Happy to hear your trip to the Biblical History Center was a great one! The summer is terribly hot, but fall and spring are wonderful! Come back in October or April to explore the garden again and not roast in the heat. ;) We hope to see you here again soon! More

the amount of history crammed into such a small space is amazing. There is so much to take in. It was a great tour for those that have been and not have been to Israel.

This is an awesome place for anyone interested in Biblical History. It was a little difficult to find because the sign was a bit off the main highway where you turn onto Gordon Commercial Drive. Also, you might want to call ahead of time if you are wanting to participate in a guided tour. They will try to match you... More
