Christ In The Smokies Museum And Gardens177 Votes Currently Closed
The Christ in the Smokies Museum & Gardens is a quiet place for meditation and reflection. It is a retreat, a place that depicts the life of Jesus Christ. Jesus was raised in the small rural town of Nazareth. His adoptive father, Joseph, taught him to use the tools of a carpenter. At the age of 30 Jesus sought out John the Baptist. John refused to baptize Jesus. Jesus went into the wilderness, to allow Satan to tempt Him just as Satan tempts us today. For forty days Jesus fasted and then beat down the foe, Satan. As He came down from the hills, He was filled with the Holy Spirit.
On a Thursday night, Jesus met with his apostles, in the city of Jerusalem. He was there to take the Passover meal with them. It was here on a solemn occasion, that Jesus told them He must soon die. That it was God's will that He give His life for His friends. He drank wine and broke bread with them. He told them to remember Him. Later that night He spent time in the garden of Gethsemane to pray. But He was arrested by a mob of angry men. Around midnight Jesus sent to trial. On tramped up charges, the Jewish authorities tried the Lord in an illegal, night-time trial.
That was not enough, they wanted Him to die. In the early morning they carried Jesus to the Governor of Judea, Pontus Pilate. Pilate had Him scourged, stripped, mocked, hoping that would appease the crowd. Finally He was beaten, shamed and then crucified. At last He began to ascend into Heaven. As He rose, He told his apostles, "Go everywhere and tell the good news." Jesus can be your Saviour.

Christ In The Smokies Museum And Gardens Reviews & Ratings
Awesome place to take the family. It's so great to see there are wholesome places to take the entire family without worrying if it's going to be appropriate. Just such a peaceful place. Very nice gift shop also.
This was a beautiful place in the Smokies. Everything was on point from the beautiful flowers to the gorgeous view. Chairs were placed about so people could sit there and just gaze into the the mountains. The trails and the waterfalls and the decorations were just absolutely beautiful. This place will always be my favorite:-)
Great story...sadly, people are falling away from the gospel, which was foretold. Really needs to be captioned or to have printed material. I was with my deaf wife & interpret ed the best I could...
No matter how much you know about the Bible. This place will help you with your heart mind and soul. Nicely put together storyline of Jesus straight from the Bible. Very reasonable and beautiful inside and out. Great place to take the whole family. The gift shop at the end of the museum has very reasonable religious stuff for the whole family. But I like how they allow you to park there the whole day and night without costing you nothing more than the admission price to the museum. This is located right in the heart of Gatlinburg on the back streets. So go enjoy the Museum for the price it's going to cost you to park anyway. Even if you aren't a spiritual person you will be spiritual when you leave. The parking lot is very safe even at night. To me this was the best museum in Gatlinburg.
We had a great time riding the chair lift and walking the sky bridge. The view from up there was amazing!
