We just happen to find this in a brochure and sure glad we did. Very nice museum. Free parking yet it is downtown. They accept donations but did not ask for a donation, etc. Beautiful chapel where there is a huge wood 3d carving of the last supper- very beautiful. They showed us a 10 minute viedo about the chapel which was very good. They also have a large museum which has tons of various nativity sets. The displays are from all around the world and very neat. This probably took us 1 hour to look thru and well worth the time!

My man and I were looking for a way to pass a couple of hours during our short stay in Nashville, so first we drove to the Adventure Science Museum. We turned away while in the ticket line after seeing a hundred kids swarming the place and decided to come to the Upper Room instead. Good choice! This church is a little bit of heavenly respite in the middle of the city. There were exhibited Nativity sculptures from all around the world,and the gardens outside were lovely as well.

I really enjoyed the Upper Room...loved the stained glass window and nativity scenes.I was way more interested than my husband, son and daughter-in-law....could have stayed longer reading all the interesting details about the artwork....definitely worth the stop for me.

The museum was featuring nativity sets from all over the world when we went. Displays are done very well. Other religious and antique items are in museum. There is a spectacular large wood carving in the chapel you must see. There is no charge for this musuem but a donation box is by the door. There is a gift shop with various religious books, coffee mugs, artwork and some luxury personal care items (lavendar farms ?) like lotions and soaps. It is a neat place to take visiting friends that they have not seen before.

Sandwiched among restaurants, hotels, hospitals, and the Vandy campus, only a pamphlet provided by the hotel revealed the chapel's existence. The chapel is ecumenical. Those interested in Ecclesiastical art and history would be intrigued and inspired by what is contained there. My husband and I said prayers in the sanctuary. Admired the fresco altar piece before moving onto the museum and bookstore. The quality of the acquired museum pieces is admirable.
Plan to spend some time as there is much to absorb.
