Wonderful and spiritually moving and inspiring site. The Rothko Chapel stretched my spiritual mind and left me with a profound appreciation and respect for other cultures and their unique but surprisingly similar perspectives on spirituality and one's inner well being. Right from the very entryway,...More

This is a surreal setting. It is in a residential neighborhood which surprises the visitor upon first exposure. When you approach the chapel you begin to experience its wonder and inspirational powers. Inside, quiet reflection is most gratifying and peace-giving. Truly a spiritual encounter. Leave...More

Idyllic setting for a chapel but the Black & Purple paintings ( very large) were not to my taste but then again I may be a philistine as far as art goes. Definitely different and quite possibly interesting but they did assist some people in...More

This chapel is so worth the visit. It is near Menill Collection Building, 3 minutes walk from the main entrance. So beautiful, inspiring, relaxing, peaceful. This place is very quite and perfect escape from noisy city.

This place is ugly and dark inside with nothing to look at. Even if it is a place for meditation it gives off an awful vibe and is the worst place to do this. Someone actually RECOMMENDED we go there and I'm mad we did....More
