Why Tour the Tabernacle?

An Opportunity Like No Other

Travel back over 3,000 years into the desert between Egypt and Palestine where more than two million people banded together to build a tabernacle for their God.

Each element inside this sanctuary had deep significance to the Hebrew people, and this tour brings each symbol to life.

Touring Messiah’s Mansion provides a unique opportunity to learn more about ancient history through a living museum.

Instead of learning about history from books, participants get a chance to see demonstrations of life long ago. This tour can engage children and adults alike.

Guided Tours 

Station One – You will gain a structural overview of the Hebrew Tabernacle and its intricate, purposeful design.

Station Two— Upon entering the courtyard, your guide will explain the humbling symbolism of the Altar of Sacrifice and the Laver.

Station Three — In the Holy Place, learn the significance of its three distinct elements:

  • Table of Shewbread
  • Alter of Incense

Station Four — Discover the Ark of the Covenant, the only article in the Most Holy Place and the most important element in the entire tabernacle.

Station Five — The last station in the tour focuses on the special garment worn by the High Priest and how it affected the history of the Hebrews.
