Bringing Ancient History To Life
The Explorations in Antiquity Center in LaGrange, Georgia, is a living museum of life in ancient times. Through archeological replicas, Biblical meal presentations, lectures, and other personal experiences, ancient Middle Eastern life becomes real today.
Experience ancient biblical life and times as you:
- Step back into time as you 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 and catacombs like those early Christians used for worship.
- Visit a village and city gate area to see what life was like 2000 years ago.
- Dine with the ancients as you share a Passover Meal much like that which Jesus ate at the Last Supper.
- 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.
- Sit in the new Roman Theater, still under construction, based on ancient theaters around the Roman world.
These opportunities and so many more wait for you at the Explorations in Antiquity Center! We hope that your visit to our web site will be the first step towards your journey to visit us in person.

This group has just enjoyed a tour of the Roman Stepped Theater and Biblical Life Artifacts Gallery. The roof and lighting were completed just in time for the Christmas Sound and Light Show "Under the Bethlehem Star." Over 1200 people experienced Christmas through drama, music and a stunning multimedia presentation.
Plans are underway for many new programs in this amazing theater, including a Good Friday and Holy Saturday event, as well as our annual Easter Sunrise Celebration. A movie night is in the planning stages, as well as a new conference with Dr. Fleming in August. Please keep checking this website for more detailed information on each of these events, and more!
