Performed from May through October, The Great Passion Play in Eureka Springs, Arkansas is "America's #1 Attended Outdoor Drama." Since 1968, the Play has been seen by over 7.7 Million people from all over the world. The Play is performed beneath the night sky by a cast of around 150 actors and many live animals as well. Our hope and prayer is to make the Scriptures come alive! THE BIBLE MUSEUM is open every day except Sunday, 10:00am until 5:00pm. On days of Play performances, the Museum is open until 8:00pm (7:00pm after Labor Day). SACRED ARTS MUSEUM - Open every day before the Play from 11:00am - 8:00pm (after Labor Day until 7:00pm). Non-play days by appointment. THE HOLY LAND TOUR - a two-and-a-half-hour to three-hour guided tour. Guests are transported back in time as they walk through a full-sized replica of the East Jerusalem Gate and Marketplace to Biblically inspired exhibits which include Moses' Tabernacle in the Wilderness, Bethlehem Inn and the Nativity, the Upper Room, the Garden Tomb, the Walk with Peter, and other exhibits which depict life in Bible times. All exhibits have been researched archaeologically and historically for authenticity. Tours run on day of Play performances from 12:00pm-4:00pm. There is walking at each stop. The longest time walking at any one stop is approximately thirty minutes. During days the Play is not performed, we also have special guided tours of the Holy Land, backstage area, and lunch. These tours happen throughout the year every day but Sunday. Advanced reservations are required for these off-season tours.

Although, if you sit too far back, you don't see as much, it is still pretty awesome. You don't really want to sit too close either or you'll miss some of the play. It is moderated and very well acted.

Main reason we traveled to Eureka Springs. The Passion Play was very well done, and the other activities available were well worth the overall price.

Nobody can go wrong with the Great Passion Play. It's was story of Jesus's final days before crucifixion. Any age would be just fine with this play and go home without if small children will have nightmares later. We didn't do the Holy Land Tour...More

The cost was $27 per person for the play, $17 for the Holy Land tour. They offer discounts to veterans and seniors, I think it was $2 off each ticket.

There are wheelchairs there to use. You do not have to rent them as far as I am aware.
