My wife likes this place more than I do. Our last stop was the Sunday after Thanksgiving, we didn't do the whole place, just the gift shop as she collects Nativities and did not have a Precious Moments nativity. They did have several, one less after our visit. The grounds are well manicured and landscaped. The chapel is a beauty.... More

This was a very unique place to visit. There was a huge garden and chapel that displayed life sized figurines of the precious moments characters. It was a great place to go with your family

This is such a nice place to stroll through. So good to see that some things are still around for the right reason. Stop and take a stroll through the grounds for tree, can't find many places like that anymore!

If you are in this area, this is definitely a must see! The artist Sam Butcher spent his life building and painting this beautiful chapel and grounds to reach out to people from all 4 corners of the earth. There are beautiful murals lining the walls and ceiling of the chapel, plus stained glass windows of his precious characters! There... More

It's a great family place to go, however I'm too cynical a person to appreciate this place to the fullest. It would probably be different if you're a Ned Flanders type of person but I toured the place in fear I'd burst into flames at any moment. Clearly you can appreciate that amount of work that went into the murals... More

My 85 year old aunt wanted to re- visit this beautiful masterpiece with her daughter and grandchild before she goes to heaven. Upon entering the chapel she was bought to tears.This chapel was her picture of what heaven was to her thinking.. It was so breath taking !

This place is so beautiful. My family and I were in town for a wedding so we decided to stop by the chapel. I loved how peaceful that you feel while walking the grounds of this wonderful place. It is definitely worth going to.

Be sure to take the chapel tour instead of just looking around .. Really pulls the whole place together. Beautiful amazing grounds as well. Food in the cafe very good as well!
