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

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...
