“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

This is a spectacular place to visit, Christian or not. It is free and has stations with statues and scriptures documenting the persecution of Jesus Christ. Lots of good information, well done and could be enjoyed from a historical stand point as well as spiritual. Very quiet and calm place to stop and rejuvenate after driving for awhile. And the cross itself is enormous. Took my breath away standing at the base of it. I highly recommend to all.

“Cross and Stations of the Cross”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

We went to Groom, TX to view the largest Cross in the Country and the Stations of the Cross which surround it. The Cross in 19 stories tall and can be seen while you are driving on Interstate 40. The cross is surrounded by life size statues of the Stations of the Cross. The sculptor is Mickey Wells. You also see the Last Supper, the Empty Tomb, the Ten Commandments. The Gift Shop is great. There is no charge to see this spectacular outdoor display.

“Impressive cross”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

The cross is HUGE and we were able to see it from miles away as we approached along Route 66. We were pleasantly surprised to find a museum and gift shop.

“Nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I did visit this attraction and found it a nice break during a long motorcycle trip. They also have a nice fountain/prayer area before you go into the gift shop. I appreciate how the site allows you to observe for free and visit the gift shop if you choose. Its nice without being preachy.

“Heart Warming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

I saw this cross from an email a couple years ago and just happened upon while driving from Amarillo. This place was overwelming. It is a great place to visit to see the artwork. What a beautiful place it is. There is one resturant in Groom, TX. I can't remember the name but the place isn't hard to find.
