This is a fascinating visit! Wood carvings based on Bible stories (and other objects); a must-see in the area if you have the time. The family that owns this is very friendly and will answer any questions. Allow approx. 90 minutes. Inexpensive admission.

I was most impressed with the carving of the Last Supper! Even though it's been a long time since I've been there, it is definitely a great place to take a family. Impressive!

The displays are amazing and the hard work that went into each sculpture is apparent. There are no cameras allowed and the fee is kind of high for the amount of time it takes to go through the displays. The wooden sculptures tell stories from...More

Housed in a big building you'll see many carvings many Biblical depictions (at least 24 large representations done) in wood as well as smaller intricate woodcarvings. The focus is the woodcarvings not a fancy building. It's not overly lit supposedly due to preservation of the...More

I visited this museum many years ago, and the life sized Biblical carvings was like taking a walk through the Bible and time, but in giant wood carvings. It is quite stark inside, but that is for a reason, so that the viewer will not...More

This was a strange experience-when you walk in, you enter a room filled with items that look like a thrift/junk store. The foyer is dark and kind of creepy. Then the owner starts talking and it gets weirder! She was snippy, barked orders at us,...More

If you know the scriptures and the Lord you will appreciate your time here. We saw it 18 yrs. ago and I still talk about it from time to time. The defeat of Satan at the empty tomb was especially moving.

It costs $5.25 plus tax (June 2007) and takes about 10 minutes to see it all, including reading everything. Its just a lot of wooden statures carved the same way. A local woman recommended it to us. It might be interesting to super religious people,...More
