This is such a nice place to stroll through. So good to see that some things are still around for the right reason. Stop and take a stroll through the grounds for tree, can't find many places like that anymore!

If you are in this area, this is definitely a must see! The artist Sam Butcher spent his life building and painting this beautiful chapel and grounds to reach out to people from all 4 corners of the earth. There are beautiful murals lining the walls and ceiling of the chapel, plus stained glass windows of his precious characters! There... More

It's a great family place to go, however I'm too cynical a person to appreciate this place to the fullest. It would probably be different if you're a Ned Flanders type of person but I toured the place in fear I'd burst into flames at any moment. Clearly you can appreciate that amount of work that went into the murals... More

My 85 year old aunt wanted to re- visit this beautiful masterpiece with her daughter and grandchild before she goes to heaven. Upon entering the chapel she was bought to tears.This chapel was her picture of what heaven was to her thinking.. It was so breath taking !

This place is so beautiful. My family and I were in town for a wedding so we decided to stop by the chapel. I loved how peaceful that you feel while walking the grounds of this wonderful place. It is definitely worth going to.

Be sure to take the chapel tour instead of just looking around .. Really pulls the whole place together. Beautiful amazing grounds as well. Food in the cafe very good as well!

My daughter and daughter-in-law just loved this place. We guys thought it was alright, but it most certainly appealed to the more attractive gender. Lots of beautiful art, statutes, buildings and grounds, all inspired by biblical scripture. Great visit and a beautifyl place.

I am a fan of Precious Moments and I have been most of my life. I loved this place. I was so moved as I walked around the property and took in all of the beauty. I have visited this place a few times. I have found new things to enjoy each visit.

My wife is a Precious Moments collector and has always wanted to see this place, especially the chapel. I was OK with that, she'd endured many western museums for my sake. Let me tell you, this is something no Christian should miss!! The art will astound you but the atmosphere of giving God praise through that art is something you... More

An unplanned stop. We saw billboards advertising this chapel and decided to check it out. Thoroughly interesting and the he history behind Sam Butcher, the artist, is stellar at best.
