It helped that I knew in advance about the chapel and its purpose which helped to mentally prepare me before the experience. As a huge Rothko found, I absolutely enjoyed my time in the chapel, just sitting in near silence and reflecting on the art and myself in a dead quiet space. I can see how not everyone would enjoy it, but if you're looking for a quiet place to sit and reflect, it is a fantastic experience.

Went to see the Chapel after the restoration, and was hoping to get some information on what had been done. We were very disappointed in the Chapel. we had never been before, so not sure what to expect. Due to the virus time tickets had to be reserved, We arrived at 1 pm for our schedule time, and at the door to the chapel was told we had to exchange the bar scan ticket for paper tickets at the Glass House. we were greeted warmly at the glass house, but no information verbally or in the form of paper hand out, given to us about the chapel and what all was done durning the months that it was closed. We went back to the chapel and gave the young women our ticket and walked. in. You walk into a narthex where there is a guest book and several religious book you can use while in the chapel if you are so led. Inside the dome, there are benches in the center that you can sit at and look at the "art" of Mr. Rothko. It consist of 14 black wall panel, that are hung around the room. Inside there were two guides, I guess to make sure no one touched the black panels. They never said a word and there are no plaques in the room talking about the "art" pieces. From what we read later, it is mainly a place for people to go and reflect, and they do hold events at times, such as musical concerts. so read up on it before going, as you will not see any information about it on the grounds. the grounds are nice, and good spot to sit on the lawn and enjoy a picnic. It is free, so that is a plus

A beautiful, meditative experience. It is quite small and you should only plan to spend a brief time there with children. Going alone, you could stay for hours. I used to walk over after university classes for a break for my mind. It is captivating.

Seeing several of Mark Rothko's painting arranged in a very respectful manner, creates a serenely unforgettable experience. This truly an amazing place where you can meditate, and come to an understanding of his work. Well worth the trip.

I am unhappy that it is presently closed. Said it is open at end of 2019, but walked by and it doesn't look even close to being open any time soon. Bummer
