In the middle of campus lies this medieval chapel. As you enter you feel peace and spirituality. A wonderful place for prayer.

I enjoyed seeing this chapel that had been taken apart and rebuilt twice during it's life. It was in France, and then I believe NY and then landed in Milwaukee. It is quaint and the campus in which it lies was nice, a beautiful sunshine day made it even more enjoyable!

If you are touring @ Marquette, be sure and stop in and talk to the tour guide here. Beautiful campus and I love that they all seem to enjoy showing off and using their historic little chapel.

As other reviewers have stated, it is a gem. I don't want to repeat what so many other reviewers have typed but I do want to add: You will not see this chapel from W. Wisconsin Ave. as it is hidden from the roadway. Park on a side street (such as 13th St. just off of W. Wisconsin Ave) near... More

The St. Joan of Arc chapel on the campus of Marquette University is a cool little gem of a find. It is a very, very small chapel in traditional gothic style. It is not a replica! It is the exact chapel from France. It was built in the 1600's and visited often by St. Joan of Arc who prayed in... More

I stumbled upon the chapel by accident on a recent trip, but I was very impressed with the decor and the surroundings. Walking in almost gives you the feel of getting in a time machine. However, this is certainly not a "must see" stop for travelers to this area as you would be in and out of the chapel in... More

Was out in the area for something with a friend and went to visit the chapel. It was lovely. There is so much beauty to be seen, it cannot be adequately described. If you are in the area it is well worth the stop to take the beauty in.

Nestled in the center of the Marquette U campus this remarkable edifice stands in stark contrast to the surrounding architecture. Relocated from it's original home over 500 years ago, the chapel is reported to be the only medieval structure in the western hemisphere used for its original purpose.
