3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014 NEW

We stopped by with 2 of our grandkids (ages 6 & 9). My husband and I had been here several yrs ago. We didnt plan to ever return because we arent collectors or into the PM dolls or figurines. We thought our grand daughter might enjoy it though. A lot of improvements since we were here last. The grounds are... More

We stopped because my oldest collects PM. It was a nice place to stop and visit on our way through Missouri. The chapel was beautiful, as we're the grounds. Staff all over was nice and friendly and helpful. It was a great place to make a few memories with my daughter's.

We traveled from Branson, our vacation base, to Carthage on Tuesday, June 18th, to visit the chapel, grounds, museum, and gift shop. My mom and dad had been previously and purchased a memorial brick for a grand daughter (my niece) who passed away quite young. My mother collected these figurines throughout my childhood and teen years and I remember them... More

I was touched more than I expected at the artistic expressions of the Bible in the chapel. Be sure to get there for the short tour (at the top of every hour) so you can hear about the details that went into his paintings.

Our entire family loved it here. Very peaceful and the chapel is just breathtaking. I recommend a visit if you are in the area.

Remember going here as a child and returned now as an adult with my own family. Loved sharing it with them. Not near as busy as it use to be, but just as beautiful!

This park is free, but, please, for the upkeep, please plan to 'donate' some money towards it. It is beautiful. (It will stay beautiful with your choice of donations) We went many years ago and this time brought our children (young teens) for their first time to see it. We all enjoyed it. We will go back. Many new things... More

We have been here before but love to return when we can. Just walking around the manicured gardens and taking in the free tours, what a wonderful way to spend a day. Love it , love it... Oh did I say "I Love It There?"

The park is showing some wear, but it is still a very charming and inspiring place. I had been there back in the 90's in the middle of it's heyday, but I liked it better this time when I could really enjoy it instead of feeling elbowed out by all the tourists. That's great for a peaceful relaxing visit, maybe... More

The tour is only about 20 minutes and only in the main room of the chapel. Well worth that time to understand and appreciate the artist feelings and personal touches he puts into his work! This was a 3-hour backtracking detour on our way home and it was well worth it!!! I am a small collector but can really appreciate... More
