In the forest near Eureka Springs, Arkansas, there is a chapel. This is no ordinary church; all four of its walls are glass. An architectural wonder and completely unique spiritual experience, the Thorncrown Chapel is a beautiful building that succeeds in bringing the outside in.

The clean lines of the chapel do not conflict with the natural surroundings as one may expect, but further enhance the beauty of the outdoors in minimalistic submission. This church is, quite simply, breathtaking.

April through November open 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM (On weekends the chapel occasionally closes at 3:30 PM for special events. Please call ahead to make sure the chapel will be open if you plan to visit late in the day.)
Closed all Saturdays in November
March and December open 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM
Closed January and February except for weddings and other special events
