Beautiful and Inspiring Architecture

Beautiful architecture in a wooded setting. It was nice to sit for awhile and take it all in...peace and serenity.

Once they figure out what they are it will solve the problem of the ugliness in the closed for wedding signs and unwelcoming greeting at the door when you are turned away. Twice on the Saturday we visited! We consulted the website which said they were open from 11 to 4. If they only make money from weddings then fine...dont... More

A must see. Unique and serene in the mountains. We felt the need to whisper in the surrounding area. It was beautiful

The Chapel is beautiful. The people who run it need a lot more people skills. The brochure said there was a changing room for the bride, but the woman in charge said she could not change there. She had to change at her hotel and travel by car in her wedding dress to the chapel.. This woman marred what should... More

This was a beautiful place. They invite you to sit down and connect with your spiritual self. This would have been much easier had the cheesy recorded music and fake ferns not been so distracting. That really kind of ruined it for me.

If I could be anywhere with my family to enjoy a peaceful, serene moment, I'd choose this beautiful chapel! It's perfect!

I'm welling up just writing a review about this place. The wonderful van tour guide, Michelle McDonald, drove us straight to Thorncrown Chapel upon our arrival. The pianist asked if I would sing with her and together we harmonized a version of Amazing Grace that elevated me to another place. The inside of this church is amazing and the feeling... More

There are not many instances when I am left speechless about an attraction. I've seen many in my lifetime but nothing compares to this place. I'm afraid if I even try to describe the beauty of this place I would not do it justice. If you find yourself in the vicinity of Eureka Springs Arkansas, do yourself a favor and... More

The glass chapel was very interesting and quiet, with soft music playing. You are given a page telling the history of the chapel when you enter, and are asked to sit down. They had no problems with us taking whatever pictures we wanted- inside and out. The staff member that welcomed us was very nice and accomodating.
