Awe inspiring and breathtaking. The story and the feelings are connected in so many ways, this just brings it all right in front of you to see with your very own eyes. Highly recommend going and take your time. The gardens are absolutely heavenly!

Portrayal of the life of Christ is done simply and Biblically. Music selections and sound system are perfect. Takes about 45 minutes with places to sit down moving from room to room. Lots of historical relics. Plentiful parking. Reasonable price.
