Bringing Ancient History to Life!

The Biblical History Center is a living museum of life in ancient times. We are located in LaGrange, GA -- just south of Atlanta and only 30 minutes north of Callaway Gardens.

Step back into Ancient Middle Eastern life -- experience our functional, large-scale archaeological replicas, Biblical meal presentations, lectures, and many other interactive experiences that allow you to live ancient history yourself!

Transform your understanding of history through our hands-on exhibits and tours:

- Sit in an authentic goat-hair tent like the nomadic shepherds have lived in for thousands of years

- See tombs like those in which Abraham and Jesus were buried

- Explore a replicated village and city gate area to see what life was like 2000 years ago

- Enter the Time Tunnel and learn about the worship practices of pagans, Jews, and Christians from 2500 BCE to 500 CE by exploring replicas of excavated houses of worship from Israel

You can even dine with the ancients as you share a Passover-style meal much like that which Jesus ate at the Last Supper! Children have the opportunity to bake bread just like ancient nomadic shepherds and participate in an archaeology-style dig that teaches them all about the past and the world of the archaeologist.

These opportunities and many more wait for you at the Biblical History Center! Thank you for visiting our Facebook page -- we hope your next visit will be in person!

  • Very nice people to work with here. I volunteered last year one day, they provided a volunteer dinner for all volunteers. This year they will have an activity once a month for groups to come explore the center! It is an amazing place to learn about history of the Bible!
  • What a wonderful experience! For any child who is old enough to have the patience to listen, as well as adults. Vern tells great stories while he explains the culture and its relationship to what you read in the Bible. This is more than a museum. The artifacts are the real thing, and Vern describes them and their place in the culture. The tour lasted about one and a half hours, but I could have listened to him much longer. Entertaining, enlightening, and full of history. We didn't get a chance to do the meal. It wasn't available that day, but we would love to go back and participate in that.
