An amazing display of the work of Samuel Butcher. And it is ongoing!! You might find Mr. Butcher there working!! We heard about this chapel from relatives and so being in the area, we took time out. There were very few there so we could take our time and had a guided tour of the chapel. Amazing work and everything... More

Precious Moments Chapel is a big draw for Carthage, MO. I’m not a big fan of the little big eyed angel statues, but was willing to give it a try. Plus it’s free, they have boxes set up for donations. The chapel and grounds are lovely. I was surprised at the length of the walk from the entrance to the... More

So you see my high rating and I want to get some of the possible star takers out of the way first. This is a VERY Christian place. I am not religious. I take personal pride in my ability to avoid most group-think. But I do not take offense from religious folks. Precious Moments is built around drawings of little... More

We made a trip out to the Precious Moments Park just because we were in the area and had heard so much about it from other people. It was an interesting experience, as attractions go. It has a very Disney like aspect to it, with all the little characters and displays and landscaping with the fountains etc. The most impressive... More

We stop to visit The Chapel at least once a year from where ever we have been visiting. This year we stopped in on our way home from Oklahoma. It is well worth the detour to get here . I will never get tired of visiting the Chapel. It is beautiful no matter the time of the year and we... More

Worth the trip if in the area. Beautiful chapel filled with beautiful paintings. The main building was nicely furnished with life sized Precious Moments figurines.

Just a few miles from the interstate but a long way from the hectic lifestyle we all live. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. We've been here in the spring, winter and now the fall and the seasons make a beautiful impact on the entire setting. The museum is interesting, the chapel astounding. However, since they do NOT charge... More

We had a bit of time before checking into our motel so we decided to visit Precious Moments Park. The setting was beautifully landscaped to compliment the statues and buildings. But nothing could have prepared us for the visit to the Chapel. It was a very moving experience. The art work reflects Mr. Butcher's strong faith. We went with the... More

We saw signs for Precious Moments on the way towards Carthage and since my wife has a few Precious Moments she wanted to stop by to see it. I thought it would be a waste of time but it turned out to be a pleasant surprise! The grounds are nice and well maintained. The chapel is not to be missed.... More
