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!

  • What a wonderful place. It's like stepping back into the timeframe from biblical events. Wonderfully curated, and fantastic tour guides. Educational and entertaining for the whole family. I highly recommend this place!
  • Great place to visit. Loved learning not only history but cultural background knowledge. Loved to see real artifacts from Israel. The highlight of the experience was the meal with traditional style food. It was a little out of the way and they are close to a small airport that caused some noise during the lecture, but all in all a very happy experience
