Christ in the Smokies Museum and Gardens in Gatlinburg is one of the nation’s most acclaimed inspirational attractions.
Take a walk through the Holy Land back in the time of Christ, amid lifelike scenes portraying the greatest story ever told. 3D dioramas create life-size settings with lighting, sound and special effects to create a moving and deeply uplifting experience.
More than 100 life-size figures populate the key scenes from the life of Christ. Additional exhibits include an heirloom Bible collection, coins from the time, temple vestments and furnishings of the age, a large painting of the Parables of Jesus, and a 900 square foot mural telling many stories.
The centerpiece is the Face of Christ sculpture that provides an inspiring gift of faith and presence to visitors.
