"Good Experience"
April, 2018
Visit was not what was expected, but still very nice. The "Gardens" is a small greenhouse type room - I expected it to be much bigger. The 'Tour' was scheduled, so after we waited a few moments we watched a small movie and then proceeded into the museum. This was timed, so after each scene, you move to the next and it takes about 45 mins to get through. Overall it was nice and put things in perspective.

"Amazing Spiritual Journey"
April, 2018
My wife and I visited Christ in the Smokies Museum and Gardens: during our Spring Break Vacation (We both teach school in Georgia). I am a pastor and my wife had visited many years ago. I had never visited and she wanted us to go together. It was an amazing trip all the way around, but the trip to the "Christ in the Smokies" with the pinnacle of our trip. It left me in the garden on my knees praising and glorifying God. I enjoy the journey with each scene depicting the life of Jesus from his birth to his ascension.The characters told the story themselves as if they were able to talk. The artifacts in the exhibits are amazing and tell the story in there unique way. We both left even more dedicated to the service of our Lord and Savior. This is an experience that will definitely impact your life and increase your faith.

This place was very reasonable. Very well laid out. You go from room to room and each room has a different story. Then you end in the gardens that has a really neat carved out carving of Jesus’s head that follows you any direction you go. I would highly recommend this place to anyone

"Summarized, but accurate depiction of the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus."

Reviewed October 25, 2018
My husband and I have visited Christ in the Smokies Museum & Gardens, although I think it was called Christus Gardens back then. The tour provides an accurate, yet summarized, depiction of the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus, while the museum religious artifacts, information and a gift shop. It's relatively inexpensive, and a good way to open conversations with loved ones about Jesus.
