If you travel to or throw Eureka Springs should take the time to stop in and see this huge statue. It is not hard to get to. You do not have to walk a long ways and it is free to the public. They do put on a play at time's. That you do have to pay for.

Beautiful statue of Christ and Absolutely stunning views of Eureka Springs. Doesn't cost anything besides the gas to get up there. Everyone should see it, especially if you are a believer.

As a family, we visited what our kids dubbed big Jesus. It was a quick drive from our hotel and free to visit. There are opportunities to donate if you choose.

I was very excited about making a stop to see the Christ of the Ozarks! We went on an overcast day but it was still worth the visit. A trip during mid-March is a bit of a challenge. Weather can be tricky and the Passion Play doesn't open until May. Still, we walked the grounds and took pictures. It was... More

Christ of the Ozarks is massive in size and can easily be seen from many strategic spots in Eureka Springs. While the statue is symbolically relevant, the sculpture itself is rather rudimentary in form and detail. Up close, the statue appears rather "blockish" and unfinished.

I have driven by this before but have never stopped. It is free to drive up and see the statue. We took time to look in the Bible museum. This was very interesting and well worth the time.

What a uplifting experience. I was moved spiritually. Next time I visit Eureka Springs, I plan on seeing The Great Passon Play.

Even though we visted in the off season (The Passion Play was not running) the grounds were still perfectly clean. My family enjoyed a quick visit for pictures with the Christ of the Ozarks statue & the section of the Berlin wall thwy have there. Very nicely maintained, we will visit again.

While I appreciate the motivation behind this statues, I cannot say it is my favorite piece of religious art work. I'll take the Vatican, thank you.
