Please know that we have recently changed the name of our museum to BIBLICAL HISTORY CENTER. We wanted a clearer name to depict who we are and what exactly we do. Nothing else about the museum has changed aside from our name. We are currently in the process of switching over the TripAdivsor page information. Please bare with us as we make that transition.** Our mission at the Biblical History Center is to help people experience the ancient biblical world, its history, and culture. We have an Archaeological Replica Garden with life-size replicas of archaeological digs including a typical house, Roman step theater, goat hair tent, tombs, and more. Our Biblical Life Artifacts Gallery houses 250 artifacts from Israel and is one of seven of its kind in the world! We also have fun activities available for kids and teens. Reservations are required for most activities.

We drive 45 minutes every Easter to attend this sunrise service. I always learn something new every year. Dr James Fleming gives us a lecture on the true history from the Bible and this year was not lacking. We looked at Mary Magdalene and how she is viewed from a strictly biblical nature. He also pointed out the error in... More

Hundreds of artifacts from Israel are on display in addition to a life size replica of portions of a typical town like Jerusalem, goat hair Shepherd's tents, burial tombs, and much much more; with knowledgable tour guides who bring it all to life.

A wonderful experience. Our guide Vern Jordin was extremely knowledgeable and gave us the feeling that we were looking into Bible history. Many inisghts were gained into the connection between the Hebrew scriptures and the life and times of Jesus. We felt as though we were transported back in time 2000 years. The artefacts portion of the center is definately... More

A group of 30 from our church spent the day at the Biblical History Center. What a wonderful preparation for the Easter Season. Our tour guide has spent many years living and studying in Israel and leads tours to the Holy Land. Over 250 artifacts from Israel in this Center which is more than the Louvre has from Israel. We...

So glad to have had this experience. The guided tour was so informative and enlightening--really helped bring the Bible to life. It is obvious that much research and care has gone into this facility. So many ancient artifacts from Israel to see. And the meal (the food and the teaching that go along with it) was wonderful. Our tour guide... More

Everything was impressive: from the introduction, to the guided tour thru the exhibits, to seeing the Israel artifacts, the delicious Biblical meal, and the gift shop. Just a very enjoyable day.

Picked up a brochure at Hills & Dales and decided to visit. Accidentally were included with a local group and had the 15 course dinner (no utensils) replicating how Jesus and desciples would have eaten. Very educational and has more artifacts from Israel than any other location in the US. Well worth the time. Probably the closest we will get... More

This small site reproduces some of the features found in the Holy Land at the time of Jesus. They have a shepherd's tent, a sheepfold, a model house, a threshing floor, a wine and a olive press, a watch tower and a grain mill. I just had a short visit but would come again.
