  • Though the artistic effort put into this display is pretty impressive, it's too dark see really well the different parts of the 'painting'. Binoculars are offered (for a price) so as to get close-ups ...  more »
  • The place is for Francophone people. The loudspeaker that explalains in English is interrupted by the French groops. The Lady in charge told them nothing to stpo. The place is so expensive -12$ - and ...  more »
  • I had presented as something unique and exceptional. Instead we found ourselves in a kind of circular dark room where there was (even worse) the Jerusalem Times. The entrance ticket is too expensive. In addition, in hopes of finding something nice, we had to spend extra money for rent binoculars once inside ... but even with those we didn't find anything that was worth the money we gave to the entrance. Flunked.

  • Rather pricey tourist trap that has definitely seen better days. Call it a unique piece of pop religion, call it kitsch… either way it's a unique experience, the kind you won't find outside Quebec. The painting itself (while faded somewhat) is massive and the work is of high quality. One neat factoid: the Cyclorama has been on display since 1895, meaning it predates the current incarnation of the famous basilica next door (which was only constructed in 1922).
  • Yes, it's cheesy, it's old fashioned, but there was a certain charm to visiting and seeing it. I wouldn't take kids here, they'd be bored, but if you want to see a bit of christian history, a venue old and reflective of another era of tourism, then visit.
  • What a beautiful out of this world picture that shows the mist important moment in human history. Thank you Jesus
  • Unique but not worth the price.
  • We have stopped there several times since first seeing it and thinking it was a velodrome building for bike racing sports. The first visit we stayed through 2 English and one French "tours" following the laser pointer identifying the various buildings and locations in ancient Jerusalem. We rented the binoculars - so worthwhile! - the detail included by the artists can be best appreciated with a magnified view. Yes the attraction is low tech and certainly is of another century but the artistry and accuracy are spectacular. An upgrade to the entrance and gleaming stainless / glass / marble accents won't capture any more of the loving talents put into this 360 degree mural which immerses one in the Jerusalem on the day Jesus was crucified. It is one of few remaining examples of the "Panorama" attraction that preceeded motion pictures and if it were in Montreal or Toronto or New York people would be lined up to have an opportunity to virtually travel in place and back in time. Looking forward to our next visit!
