Can I get a refund for The Great Passion Play if it rains?

The Great Passion Play is performed rain or shine. However, if the performance you attend is canceled due to severe weather, your ticket will be honored for another one during the year. Another option is to buy weather cancelation insurance for $3 per ticket. If it begins to rain during the play and you would rather not stay, you'll receive a full refund, provided you don't leave after the Resurrection.

Is there a fee to see the Christ of the Ozarks Statue?

There is no admission charge to see the Christ of the Ozarks Statue though donations are very much appreciated. The same holds true for the Bible Museum, Sacred Arts Museum, and History Museum. For a $10 tax-deductible gift, you'll be able to light the Christ of the Ozarks for one night. It can be done in honor or in memory of someone you would like to remember.
