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

This was our first visit to the Precious Moments Park. We had heard about it from family members that had been there and since we were passing through just had to stop. We arrived about 3:30 on a Friday afternoon and there was only a few people there. The grounds are beautiful and so peaceful. We were able to catch... More

This was my first visit to the Precious Moments Chapel. I lost my son 2 years ago and he was 28 then a year and a half later I have been diagnosed with terminal cancer. A friend of mine had been several times and she took me to show me how beautiful it was. The grounds are absolutely amazing, the... More

We've been here three or four times in the past three years, and I'm sure we'll be back again. But, yesterday's visit was extra special. Seeing the beautiful grounds, with the oversize replicas of the many Precious Moments figurines in the garden, museum, and garden areas, and the animated figurines in the Welcome Center is always a wonderful sight to...

Precious Moments are not my preferred art or gift style but this was still worth a stop. In some ways, it’s a bit like “It’s a Small World.” The style and color palette are very much uniform but it was fun to see. It’s worth hitting the tour on the hour so you can hear more about the paintings, the... More

The grounds are beautiful, the chapel is breathtaking, the museum is very interesting. And the day we were there Mr Butcher was painting on the ceiling of the chapel. I was neat to actually see the creator of all of this beauty & his giving God the glory by showing Bible stories in his murals & paintings.

I honestly didn't know what to expect and in my mind I thought I would see over sized Precious Moments figurines. While there is a lot of Precious Moments "stuff" to purchase, there is so much more to this place. The chapel tour is informative and lets us get a glimpse into the mind of the designer and developer. It's... More

My wife is a big fan of Precious Moments figurines, and she enjoyed the time we spent here. There is no charge for admission, and the visit was really great. This was our second trip through Southern Mo and our second visit, would definitely do it again if passing through the area.

We have been here before. On July 22nd we went for a motorcycle and decided to stop again and boy I'm glad we did! We have the privilege of meeting the talented Sam Butcher himself! What a great man! Will DEFINITELY be back!
