Sam Butcher inspired art in every detail, fountains, buildings, and paintings similar to Michelangelo. Great for all ages, with very thoughtful presentations to capture the hearts of children.

I stopped here because my grandmother collected these figurines. It was about seven to ten minutes off the highway and a well spent hour. The statues, stained glass and murals were beautiful! There are tours every hour on the hour. We didn't take the tour.
