We have visited here a few times as it is only a couple of hours from us. We love it every time. It is a free visit thanks to the owner and creator. Good family fun and very inspirational. So many unique pieces to view and then you come to the Chapel, WOW! Large gift shop too.

We brought our church bible quiz team to Carthage and brought them here for a side trip. Very peaceful and relaxing. A great way to spend several hours with your family.

The place isn't big, but it is done right. Our 5yo loved it. Everyone with little girls should come here. The best part is that it is free!!! We got so many cute pics too.

This was my wife's first visit to precious moments. She really enjoyed it. It was the first time that I was able to visit the museum part of the park. The chapel is always a nice place to visit. The paintings have been added to since my last visit.

When we were booking our hotel, the website listed the Precious Moments Park and Chapel as being close by. I told my husband that we needed to see that as I had several Precious Moments figurines.

Just to start off we are not into precious moments but we were in the area and decided to check it out. The grounds leading up to the chapel have been landscaped and also include fountains and precious moments statues. It was not bad but kinda average. The chapel itself is kinda small considering how much room they dedicated to... More
