We were back for our third visit to The Precious Moments Chapel! It just never gets old. The chapel, museum, and grounds are beautiful and immaculate. Of course the gift shops are always our final stop so we can load up on chapel exclusives. . There is a sweet woman working in the gift shop, Lindsey, who was a wealth... More

This is my third visit to the Precious Moments Chapel, but the last time was over 10 years ago. A lot has changed with the closing of the Fountain of Angels Show, Wedding Island, and Cubby's RV Park. However, it is still a beautiful place to visit. We were there about an hour this time because we were in a... More

I am an avid collector and enjoy coming to the chapel each year. Timmy's tower was a great addition to the park. The bells were great to listen to while sitting near the cave. I will be excited to return next time to see the Tower completed.

My mother and I were here 10 years ago. It was a peaceful experience and now I'm a mother of an 8 year old and 14 year old. It's still very nice and peaceful. Our tour lady Cindy was great. I feel very blessed to be able to share it with my children.

We finally visited the Precious Moments Chapel in person, having scratched our heads over those highway billboards for years. I anticipated a harmless afternoon of kitschy fun during our family road trip, but came away genuinely moved. Before we stepped out of the car, the kids were subjected to my lecture about how they must maintain a respectful, subdued demeanor... More

We loved this stop. The paintings, carvings, and windows are awesome. The gift shop is a joy and just seeing the progression of Precious Moment figurines is fun. The gardens are beautiful and the message of the whole place is the truth everyone needs.

My mom has wanted to come here for years & this time we had the extra time, so we stopped for her. The gift shop was huge! The grounds were so pretty & serene, with several fountains. The chapel was beautiful both inside & out. The main part of the chapel was covered in Precious Moment murals, depicting scenes from... More

I thought it was a stretch to make this a religious place. It was more like a showplace for the precious moments brand. The religious pictures in the "chapel" were cute, but not holy. The shops were extensive and well decorated. If you like these statues, it would be a great place to shop for discontinued items and a variety... More

Perhaps I am a bit critical or nit-picky about Precious Moments Park. It's been some time since we visited the place, but I was just not all that impressed. The "chapel" was just a room with a bunch of little Precious Moment type of angels painted on the walls. When I think of a "chapel" I imagine something sacred, but... More

The Precious Moments Chapel is set on serene, quiet grounds. There are tours every hour that last about 20 minutes and they are held in the main part of the chapel. It is free to tour and you are also invited to visit other rooms in the chapel such as Peter's Prayer room-dedicated to Sam Butcher's late son, Peter. There... More
