“get hitched!”

Precious Moments Park and Chapel inspired by Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel in Rome, Precious Moments artist and creator, Samuel J. Butcher, designed and constructed the Precious Moments Chapel as his way of sharing the joy of his faith with the world, and it has become his crowning work. The Chapel is so much more than just a building, touching the lives of those who enter its doors with a sense of peace, hope, and promise since it opened in 1989. Sam used his beautiful and innocent Precious Moments messengers to bring well known and loved stories from the Bible to life in dozens of murals – all hand-painted by Sam himself. From the story of creation to the promise of the resurrection, the Chapel tour guide takes guests through the many stories of God’s love for us. The art on the east side of the Chapel depicts the Bible’s Old Testament stories; while New Testament stories are shown on the west side. The mural “Hallelujah Square” celebrates the lives of real children whose lives ended too soon, but whose stories continue to bring a message of love, hope and peace. All of the murals combine to cover nearly 5,000 square feet – truly a breathtaking sight.

A fun place for who have a soft spot for Precious Moments figurines. The chapel represents a man's ongoing project to use whimsy characters to glorify the Lord.

This place is over the top, but very American. There is a chapel, gift shop and restaurant, all revolving around the Precious Moments figurines. Great place to get out and stretch your legs. The walk to the chapel is quite a walk, but it is paved and an easy walk. Plus there are clean bathrooms and the facility is all free. Someone said the place was showing wear, I would not agree. I thought it was very well kept up

Interesting Stop, and free tour. We enjoyed it. The grounds are starting to show some wear maybe a lack of upkeep outside of the main building and chapel.
