I made a quick visit to the Washington Memorial Chapel in December 2021 as part of my visit to Valley Forge National Historical Park and my self-guided driving tour of nine stops. The chapel was the last stop. It is very beautiful inside with an altar and stained glass.

Washington Memorial Chapel is stunning inside and out. The structure is magnificent and beautifully preserved. Walk around the outside to see the details and enjoy the serenity of the inside of the chapel.

The Washington Memorial Chapel at Valley Forge is incredibly beautiful. There is so much history at Valley Forge National Park, visitors should plan on spending at least half a day to see it all.

The Chapel/Church is lovely and peaceful with lots of areas to explore. There is a large cemetery area to drive along on the way to the Chapel. Everything is beautifully maintained. Plan on spending around an hour in this area of the Park.

While touring the Valley Forge National Park, we stopped and went inside the Washington Memorial Chapel and the adjacent Bell Tower. Both were quite impressive and inspiring.

Saw the outside on our driving tour. The park is huge and you must dedicate a whole day if you want to see everything.

The history is wonderful. The scenery is beautiful. Being able to drive through with cell phone self tour - stopping and lingering/exploring where you want is nice. Your time isn’t dictated by someone else.

Worth stopping by for if you are visiting the Valley Forge Historic Park. Beautiful inside and out. It won't take long to walk through and every little donation is very helpful in preserving the chapel. (since the chapel does not receive any funding that goes to the Valley Forge Historic Park)

The Washington Memorial Chapel is a very beautiful historic (built early 1900’s) chapel which is located in the Valley Forge National Historic Park although it is not officially part of the park. The outside of the chapel building is undergoing renovations as of summer 2019. Both Valley Forge National Historic Park and Washington Memorial Chapel are FREE attractions. There is free parking adjacent to the Chapel & a Gift Shop in a separate building behind the chapel.

The Washington Memorial Chapel hosts Weddings & Events as well as Church Services on Saturday’s @ 5 PM & Sunday’s @ 8 AM and 10 AM.

Inside the entrance on the right is The Justice Bell as well as Stained Glass & other history. Walking to the left down the hallway is a room off to the right with more history. The Chapel is absolutely beautiful with amazing detail, stunning, with a beautiful Altar & stained glass - MAGNIFICENT! There are pews & candles right inside the entrance.

Definitely worth visiting! Although there is construction going on outside of the building, it does NOT detract from the beautiful Chapel!

Drove by without planning to stop and then thought what the heck and pulled a U-turn down the road and came back. Very glad I visited the Chapel as it is very nice on the inside and I learned several interesting historical notes. A little bit of construction was going on but did not hamper the experience. Good family stop and adds to the Valley Forge experience.
