The Great Passion Play

Since 1968, The Great Passion Play has amazed nearly 8 million visitors from across the world at this amazing attraction! Behold as scripture comes alive in a three-story-high amphitheater the size of two football fields, setting the story of Jesus' life to a huge stage. Watch in awe and reverence as Jesus gains a following before being betrayed by Judas. Grieve as Jesus gives up his life for your sins as he is crucified on the cross, and rejoice when he arises from the tomb in his holy resurrection. You can witness the story of Jesus Christ as he experiences life, performs many miracles, and spreads the word of God. A great experience for the entire family, this heartwarming play is one you must see!
 

The New Holy Land Exhibit Tour

Explore the culture, history, and people of ancient Middle East in the time in which Jesus was raised on this outstanding bus tour. Visit replicas of biblical scenes including the room where the Last Supper took place, and a full-sized replica of the Tabernacle. Encounter characters roaming around and hear true dialogue from the times of Moses to Christ just as if you were currently living in Biblical times. You can pet the animals in the petting zoo, walk down the trail to the various landmarks, and interact with the exhibits. You can also walk or be shuttled to the Christ of the Ozarks: a 1500-foot statue.
 
  • Bible Museum: Make sure you take a visit here to observe the many rare pieces in this museum, such as the first bible to be completely translated into English, Coverdale's Bible. Get an up close look at several other exceptional bibles in this museum including a 1st edition original 1611 King James Version, Martin Luther's German Translation, Greek New Testament by Erasmus published in 1516, and William Tyndale's New Testament.
  • The Creation History Museum: This museum gives an insight to guests on the story of human creation and how the Bible plays a role in our history.  
  • Sacred Arts Gallery: A walk through the Bible Museum takes approximately 45 minutes, while you can explore the art gallery at your own pace. There are many hiking trails around the area as well, so you could spend so much time on the property with the whole family during your vacation to the beautiful Eureka Springs.

"It way exceeded our expectations"
We really enjoyed our trip to the passion play. It way exceeded our expectations and everything thing we did there was a good experience. The holy land tour was great all but it being really hot outside!! The pre- shows we’re really neat. My youngest loved the petting zoo and the bible museum was great. We didn’t have time to see the art museum but enjoyed seeing christ of the ozarks lit up at night. My kids ranging from age 16-age 8 said they would all love to watch the play again!!
