Create an itinerary including Thorncrown Chapel
A seemingly open-air chapel in the midst of a forest, Thorncrown Chapel is actually made of organic materials yet glass-enclosed and air-conditioned. The chapel is considered to be a significant influence in the field of architecture. The structure was designed so that each ray of light and change of weather makes the building appear different at every moment. Voluntary donations are accepted.

  • This is a must if traveling through Eureka Springs. Such an awesome spirit you feel when entering the front doors. God is definitely present and the story of how it was completed is proof.

  • Gorgeous Chapel. I am going to school to be an Architect and Interior designer so seeing this was definitely amazing for me. It was designed by E. Fay Jones along with Frank Lloyd Wright. It is beautifully done. I highly recommend going here to just see it or have a special occasion here.
  • Calm, beautiful and magical. If you're ever in or near Eureka Springs, definitely make sure you take a few minutes to stop by and check out this marvel in the woods. It shouldn't take more than that, as its just one chapel, but you'll feel like you have walked into an elven structure or something out of a fantasy novel. Be sure to check the times online beforehand though since hours do change daily.
