I have visited the chapel a couple times and every time I have been there I really enjoy the opportunity to sit for a couple minutes and just forget about the rest of the world and feel connected with nature, it is a precious place to visit..

This is a beautiful chapel. I'm so glad we stopped here. There is a sign in front of the chapel that invites you to come in and sit a while and states that you are welcome to take photos from your seat. There were two ladies sitting by the entrance who welcomed us and handed us the pamphlet that tells... More

If you love architecture and tranquility, Thorn Crown Chapel will feed your needs. It's often closed to visitors on weekends because of weddings or events, but make a point of visiting the grounds and take a quiet moment in the chapel if you can.

It was my first visit to Eureka Springs, and I had heard this place highly recommended. I stopped by on a Sunday morning, my very last stop before heading out of town to another destination about 3 hours away. Alas, I didn't think that it was 11:00, when their worship service might be starting. I walked in, and it was... More

A architectural masterpiece worth stopping to see. Wish I'd been there on a Sunday for a service to really absorb the environment

Peaceful and serene, this stunning architectural masterpiece is set in the beautiful woods of northern Arkansas. Try to visit when you are the only ones there. A busload of tourists can be offfputting.

We stumbled on this site. Rather we were directed by the Almighty. An all glass chapel in the woods where to step inside is to enter the solitude of the Lords presence. My wife is a trained classical singer & got to sing in this place. The sound in that quiet was totally unbelievable. We both walked out humbled. If... More
