“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

We took my brother and his wife to the Crystal Cathedral when they came out for a visit. Enjoyed the beautiful grounds and building. Took many pictures and will be going again.

“Sad that an era is ending.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

I have been to teh Crystal Carhedral for multiple funcions, Church service, Graduations, The Arvella Schuller Award Ceremonies, The Glory of Christmas. But now they are on borrowed time as the church has been sold to the Catholic Arch Diocese. The sad end of an era.

“Worth the stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

This is just not like anything you will see elsewhere. Be sure to walk all around the grounds and check out the statuary but most importantly - check out the ladies room - it is not to be believed.

I honestly must say I am not a religious person. But just to see this in person is such an awesome sight.
