Our Family absolutely loved this display and museum. We were so blessed to have had the opportunity to view the exhibits and take some time to remember the real reason for why we are here. God. I recommend that everyone visiting Gatlinburg stop and see Christ in the Smokies.
Tip: Visit early in the day before or off peak season.

"Hidden treasure"
October, 2015
Three of us traveled to Pigeon Forge area, Went on line prior and found Christ in the Smokies and purchased the tickets to surprise the other two. We loved it. The characters were so realistic, made you feel like you were a part of the scene. Beautiful portrayal of each event. This little hidden treasure is worth the visit, we now tell everyone we know to stop by. Most that has travel there for years did not even realize it was there.
Tip: You can purchase tickets on line and save. Great parking after you visit,you can walk to all the other attraction and park free.

"Visiting Christ in the Smokies"
July, 2015
I visited Christus Gardens in the early 70's with my children and wanted to relive the experience. It was better now than then. With each scene, My wife and I were taken back into time. It was breathtaking. The people in the scenes looked as real as if we were talking with them. It certainly made me glad to call myself Christian after my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. My plans are to go back next year for another visit. If you are going to Gatlinburg, stop in. One of the best attractions in town.

"Interesting depiction of the life of Christ"

We visited the Museum on a Tuesday morning, so the groups were smaller than might be on a weekend. The tour is a series of scenes that tell the story of Jesus, from His birth to His Ascension. Well done and truthful without being overbearing in sharing the gospel. The museum includes a display of Old Testament history as well, including models of the Tabernacle and the Temples and information about numerous significant Old Testament figures such as Abraham, Moses, David and others. Well worth a visit!

"You feel the spirit in this building!"

This was a must do on my list of activities while visiting Gatlinburg. So happy with my decision. I felt the spirit of Christ through Out this whole building. The depictions were great. The only thing I feel could have been done more was more scripture and information through out the tour. But nevertheless I loved it! I teared up through the whole tour but when I sat down on the pew to view our savior on the cross I bawled like a baby. I was so appreciative of this tour. I definitely felt the love of our god., and was very humbled from this experience. I will never forget this. The gift shop was amazing! If I would have had more money I would have bought much more than what I did! I wish they sold the gift items online as well! MAYBE YOU GUYS COULD DO THAT? I want more 💜 thanks again

This is a great Christian attraction. The museum guides you from room to room with displays of various scenes from the life of Christ. There is a discount for showing your Sky Lift tickets. Also, if you buy tickets to the museum, you can leave your car in their parking lot the rest of the day -- and that's a pretty convenient location.

I am a former minister and thought it would be educating but it was a waste of time and money. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY. NOT WORTH IT.
