My sister was in from California so we took her and it was breath taking.Sam was there doing touch up on the paintings so watching him work was a beautiful thing. My favorite time of year to go is around Christmas they do a great job decorating.

When you visit be sure and read the history of the Precious Moments figures. It was very inspiring to see how all of this came about. Take your time and savor the beauty of the place, both inside and out.

Your heart will be touched as the tour guide explains who the angels represent in the beautiful majestic paintings. The Bible pictures appear to be so obvious, but when the tour guide explains the pictures you will see even more. Take your camera to capture your favorites.

This was my first visit to Precious Moments Chapel. The tour, paintings, and complete story of the artist leaves you glad you have been there! Had no idea the stories behind the characters would have such an impact! You will fall in love with Precious Moments because of the deep meanings behind each one!
