It's extremely family friendly, so your children are sure to love it as well.

History & Mission

The Holy Land Experience was created by founder Marvin Rosenthal in 2001, out of a desire to proclaim the gospel to as many people as possible and to help believers develop a better understanding of the Judaical roots out of which Christianity sprang. The mission of this extremely unique theme park is to demonstrate the greatest commandments of God to all of the people, as well as to be a place of worship for anyone who wishes to praise here. Most importantly, the park's mission is to serve as a place of Biblical (and historical) education. Everyone is welcome, regardless of their background, or what they personally believe in.
