Great architecture!

This place is a true work of art nestled in the ozarks. It is free of charge to get in but a donation would be greatly appreciated. It is worth the stop if you're in the area.

Not near what it is hyped to be. Maybe we came at the wrong time. Hard to believe it is rated number one spot to see on trip advisor when there are so many interesting and beautiful things to see. Perhaps we should have come during Sunday service instead.

I first visited Thorncrown Chapel about 35 years ago when I was in junior high. I have always remembered the unique setting and architecture of this chapel.

Very beautiful and inspirational. This was not my first visit, but I recommend it to all visitors. They give the history and a brochure. It is very easy to find, and not very far from Eureka itself.

Pictures do not do this chapel justice at all. It is amazing, peaceful and worth whatever time you give it.

We arrived around 9:30 on a Saturday morning. We were looking forward to showing the chapel to an out-of-state friend. However, there was a man talking to a church group. We do not know if he was a part of the chapel staff or the churches. They had taken over the chapel which shouldn't happen unless it's closed to the... More
