Reviewed May 26, 2012

We didn't have nearly enough time to linger as long as this venue requires. Most folks on here have already summed up how striking the interior artwork very well and I'd second their words. I also really appreciated how pleasant the guest services staff was to those of us coming in to take a peek.

“Beautiful Mosaics”
Reviewed May 25, 2012

The art work inside this Cathedral is similar to great works of art in Europe. It is like visiting a museum and the museum building is the art work. There is nothing that I dislike.

“So Beautiful”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

A must see for anyone who loves churches or just the design of a great building. The statues inside are beautiful and it's so peaceful.

“Awesome Experience”
Reviewed May 22, 2012

Our high school choir students enjoyed an evening at the Cathedral Basilica listening to the orchestra play Mozart. Our choir was invited to sing a "spiritual" song after the concert to see how the inside of the cathedral sounded. Awesome experience for all!
