Experience the Holy Land in the USA Dec 02, 2015
At this time, as Christians all over the world get ready to celebrate Christmas, I would like to share my visit to the Holy Land Experience located in Orlando, Florida.

The Holy Land Experience is a living, biblical museum and park that brings together the sights and sounds of the bibical world in a unique and interactive way, and takes you 2000 years back in time to the land of the Bible.

As our starting point we entered through the gates of the walled city of ancient Jerusalem, you can see that the structures and exhibits characterize the style, architecture, and settings that existed in the Holy Land 2000 years ago. The Garden Tomb, Qumran Dead Sea Caves, Great Temple and Plaza, Jerusalem layout model, and Wilderness Tabernacle are all intricately detailed, both inside and out.

Imagine entering an exact replica of the Garden Tomb where the body of Jesus Christ was buried. Then at the grand entrance to the Temple Plaza, we walked under a massive archway and behold, the gleaming white stone plaza surrounded with its thirty Roman columns. Here we saw the breathtaking representation of the Great Temple, that once stood on hallowed Mount Moriah in 1st century Jerusalem.

We ended our tour at The Scriptorium which is a Center for Biblical Antiquities.

Normal admission fee is $50 for a one day ticket. However, we were there during the free entrance Christmas week when the park offers a free walk through Lights Tour in the evenings. It was indeed a wonderful opportunity to see the gorgeous decorations and lights at a leisurely pace, which to me is the perfect atmosphere to put you in the true Christmas spirit.

In conclusion, if you want to take an amazing "journey" through the pages of history according to the Bible, I would definitely recommend a visit to the Holy Land Experience.

@Bill: Yes, $50 is quite expensive, but we got in free as it was a special Lights Tour for Christmas week.

a day well spent for any "believer" Jun 27, 2009
holyland isnt a large park but it is very nice. at $35 per ticket its also expensive. still, a day here is what you make of it. you can be very critical, looking for historical inaccuracy and complaining. the second option is to enjoy the show and take with you the message thats being conveyed. i chose the latter and had a great time.

i remember getting a map of the park layout. there was also a list of all the re-enactments with there associated place and time. i enjoyed the re-enactments and learned alot. sure you can read a book or watch something on television, but nothing compares to a live and in color experience.

i really want to commend the person that portrays JESUS. he certainly had an ora about himself. by now, i wouldnt know if its the same person or not.

all and all i recommend the holyland experience.
the temple
beautiful detail
here comes JESUS
