Thorncrown Chapel, Eureka Springs

4.7
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.

  • What a beautiful and peaceful location. I was able to take a few pictures to show. To drive in, it may seem like you are going on private property with a roaming guard dog sign. Once inside, it was comfortably warm when sitting in the extremely quiet pews. The windows were uncannily clean. The view was worth it. Such a delight.
  • The chapel looks very nice and is obviously well made. What made this a 4 star rating instead of 5 was the fact that you walk into the chapel and then you have to quietly sit there. There was no sermon or anything going on so it was kind of awkward. You also can’t stand up to take pictures. I don’t get it.
