PRLog - May 16, 2012 - MANSFIELD, Ohio -- Mansfield, OH – The world's largest religious wax museum turns 25 this year. To honor the anniversary, BibleWalk, the Living Bible Museum located in Mansfield, Ohio is offering the tours for just 25 cents during its birthday week, Aug. 12-17.  The museum offers four different tours, a collection of rare Bibles and the world's largest collection of American votive folk-art.  This unique art form became stylish in the 1910s among newly arrived immigrants who would collect costume jewelry, hat and tie pins, beads, cuff links, collar studs, coins, and other items, sculpting them into elaborate biblical scenes.  Complete information on BibleWalk and visiting Mansfield is found at www.MansfieldTourism.com or by calling (800) 642-8282.

BibleWalk first opened August 15, 1987 with 19 scenes highlighting both the Old and New Testament.  Today, the museum offers two one-hour tours and two half-hour tours. In 2003, BibleWalk became the largest religious wax museum in the world.  In addition to its rare votive art and bible collections, BibleWalk features more than 300 wax figures and more than 70 dioramas of authentic biblical re-creations, complete with audio text and special effects.  BibleWalk is also home to the Christian Dinner Theater “Dinner With Grace.” Three seasonal plays are offered throughout the year.  Detailed information is available www.biblewalk.us.

While in Mansfield, stop by the Ohio State Reformatory which combines the architectural styles of Victorian Gothic, Richardsonian Romanesque and Queen Anne.  Tour Brownella Cottage, the restored Victorian mansion of Bishop William M. Brown, including the Bishops study which was converted from a catholic church.  View the early history of African American triumphs and hardships at the Cosby Educational Heritage Center.

In addition to BibleWalk, Mansfield, Ohio offers a wealth of other unusual travel adventures, including everything from overnight ghost hunts in a haunted former state prison to a museum that houses the world’s first robot. A destination unlike any other, the area’s world-class motorsports, breathtaking scenery and rural and hometown experiences are complimented by hiking, biking, golf, cross-country and downhill skiing, bird watching and loads more unique adventures.
