Mansfield’s Biblewalk celebrating 30th year


MANSFIELD — If you’ve never experienced Ohio’s only life-sized Biblical wax museum, this is your chance.

BibleWalk is celebrating its 30th Anniversary this year and has announced the “Experience of Summer” promotion.

Visitors can buy three tours for only $3.30 (a $17.25 value). The promotional price is only available on June 30, July 30, and August 30, in recognition of their 30 years.

BibleWalk, built in 1987 in Mansfield, Ohio, is the largest life-sized Biblical Wax Museum in the United States.

The original museum, known as The Living Bible Museum, consisted of 19 life size dioramas, utilizing museum quality fiberglass figures. Thirty years later, BibleWalk has grown into five tours consisting of 78 scenes featuring more than 300 life-size wax figures. Each scene is underscored with original music, narration and special effects.

BibleWalk presently offers two one-hour tours: The “Miracles of the Old Testament” and “The Life of Christ.”

There are three 30-minute tours: “The Heart of the Reformation,” “The Museum of Christian Martyrs” and :Amazing Grace-The Journeys of Paul.”

In addition to the five tours, BibleWalk also highlights eight one-of-a-kind exhibits, and a Christian Dinner Theater aptly named “Dinner With Grace.”

“When people come to BibleWalk, no matter what their motivation, they always have a pre-conceived idea or set of expectations,” said BibleWalk director Julie Mott-Hardin. “Through the years, I have witnessed BibleWalk exceed their ideas and expectations. I have observed that people come to BibleWalk expecting to look at life-size wax dioramas and somewhere along the way they stop looking and really begin to see, not only with their eyes but also with their heart. I have rejoiced in this countless times throughout these last 30 years.”

“In the last 30 years we have been introduced to the world wide web, smart phones, online banking, WiFi and text messaging just to name a few. All of the above have changed our lives for the better and — depending on your point of view — worse. But no matter what your point of view, experiencing BibleWalk through the Experience of Summer will be added to the list that will definitely change your life for the better.”
