It was like you were in his prescience there, A place where you can feel the love of Christ. I will defiantly return, here, when I come back.

Despite seeing the negative reviews of this statue built in the '60s, seeing Christ of the Ozarks for my first time was a huge blessing for me (I have lived in Arkansas since October '99). As a born again Christian, seeing a piece of our American heritage in the form of a Jesus statue that is similar to Rio de... More

Not sure what all the hype is about. The statue is very nice and easy to get to, but up close it isn't much to look at. It is neat to see it from down below in the city. The one upside to going to see it in March is there are no crowds and the Passion Play hasn't started.

This is a must see thing. The statue, which is more than 20 meters tall, was primarily the work of Emmet Sullivan, who also worked on nearby Dinosaur World. He had assisted in the work at Mount Rushmore. The statue is modernistic and minimalistic; there is little facial detail or expression, and the lines and forms are generally simplified. Makes...

The Christ of the Ozarks statue is so awe inspiring and spiritually uplifting! They used to have a really good buffet near the statue in a building that had stained glass windows and felt like you were in a church! Was really cool, sorry to see that go!

It will take just a few minutes to walk over and see the statue. In the same area they have a part of the Berlin Wall. Lots of parking and a bathroom is available. A gift shop is also open on the grounds.

My family and I heard about this statue and wanted to see it in person. We took the ride out there and weren't dissapointed. The statue is simple and beautiful. The overlooking view makes it even more impressive. Don't miss this opportunity.
