The history of the chapel, the rich donor and the pieces that occupy the chapel today are well described by the docent that gave us the tour.

The Chapel is the highlight of my visit to my alma mater. It's a beautiful little oasis with flowers outside, and the sacred space inside, and seems more lovely every time I come back.

My wife and I included this site on a recent visit to Milwaukee. It is a highlight and is very interesting. As a bonus, we met the official photographer of Marquette University. He was very gracious and helpful, and made our visit special

It is always good to pay a visit to the chapel. It brings back a lot of memories from my college days in the early 80's.

This Chapel is worth the parking that you will have to go thru to see it. Marquette maintains it and the grounds surrounding it immaculately! You won't be disappointed!

What a beautiful place for this chapel. Located on small knoll in the middle of the Marquette Campus. Kept true to history. Great place to hear mass. I would suggest calling ahead to make sure the chapel is open, and perhaps check to see if there is a service available during your visit. Great site for picture taking as well.

Bring a Marquette Alumni I am very familiar with the Joan of Arc Chapel. It is really a great setting and a worthwhile stop when downtown.

This beautiful little church was transported to NY and then to Marquette and lovingly restored. It includes a stone from a base of a statue where Joan of Arc prayed and which she probably kissed!
