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 than anything. But it was enjoyable overall.

Had a great time at this museum. The visuals are great! The presentation of all the life like figures are pretty neat. The tour is a walk through with one exhibit being presented at a time. When the message for that theme ends you walk to the next exhibit as the narrator starts to talk. The final exhibit is that of Jesus being taken up in the clouds. The exhibit of the last supper was my favorite. The life size figures are so colorful and true to life. There is a place for you to sit during each presentation. After the presentations end you are escorted into the gardens where you will see the most amazing Face of Christ sculpture. As you walk past it the face seems to move in your direction!!

Done very tastefully. One comes out very calm. They have some nice items for sale that make great Christmas gifts. We have learned that you can come here and park all day. Pay the admission price and then go shopping. Just about one block from the main street (a little up hill going but down hill coming back),

As a Christian, I found the "Bible-speak" a little heavy handed. The Crucifixion scene is not predicted accurately. Overall, the museum itself (wax figures, etc) needs some serious updates
