Located in the center of Gatlinburg, Tennessee, Christ in the Smokies Museum and Gardens is one of the nation's foremost inspirational attractions. Enjoy the experience of walking through a Biblical world of 2000 years ago! The Museum features incredibly lifelike scenes telling the Story of Christ by utilizing life size figures, dramatic lighting, music and special effects! Fun for the whole family!

As Christians, it was refreshing to find a tourist site that both recognized and celebrated our faith. It was a nice break from all the other secular tourist attractions.
I visited (formerly known as) Christus Gardens when I was a little girl and had forgotten the details of the experience. An inspired depiction of the life of Christ in beautifully and meticulously crafted life size vignettes and narrative. Definitely worth a visit!
This attraction is not well publicized but well worth searching for. We saw it from the Gatlinburg Skylift and took it as sign. We were not disappointed. If you love Jesus you will love this attraction.
I am a Christian, and so is my wife, and we were excited to spend some time here. I am not going to give this a great review just because it is a Christian themed 'attraction'. The value for the cost in my opinion is below average. IT is a depiction of the life of Christ as displayed by wax figures. You get birth, ministry, death, resurrection, ascension. Granted, some of the scenes are nicely done, especially the ones near the end. There is somewhat of a lack in continuity in the facial features of Jesus from scene to scene. In one he looks Semitic, in another very western. While you look at the scene, a voice-over reads scripture. Honestly, this adds nothing new to your understanding of the Lord, unless you are a brand new believer. I would say this should be priced at perhaps 8 to 10 dollars max to be a good value. There are places where you can get a coupon for 1 or two dollars off. There is a good value in the parking, however. $5 for all day; you can walk up and down the main street to your hearts content. My advice: grab a brochure and look at the pictures. That is what you will see inside. Park for $5 and enjoy your day.
