Everyone enjoyed walking through the story of Jesus' life from the 7 year old to the 79 year old. Free parking for the day was an added bonus.

This was a must do for my family. You are guided through a tour of Jesus' life and death. I was very impressed and met some wonderful people while in there.

A beautiful and peaceful respite from the hustle of Gatlinburg. Lively music and very realistic wax figures, peaceful garden. Refreshing. The face sculpture was fascinating, but no photos could be taken of it.

I really enjoyed going through this wax museum. Took our church youth group during the weekend. Made the Bible more interesting to be able to visualize the stories.

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.

this was a very nice quiet soothing break from all the business of the area. Loved the additional free parking so we could then go walking around the shops in Gatlinburg. We also paid the $5 to park there each day that we went walking...More
