Overview

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.

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.

The planning and execution of this facility are notable. So much to see and experience. The "Biblical Meal" was tasty and surprisingly filling. Our group enjoyed this experience very much.

We read about this place before we came to LaGrange and were intrigued. We have visited Israel and some places that try to create the mood of Israel Stateside that were woefully missing the mark. BUT The Biblical History Center definitely hit the mark. Even...More

For those interested in the history of the Jews, this is a must see. It is a walk through the ancient days of Israel as presented to my knowledge, no where else. A great way to spend the day if you are in the area.
