The Upper Room Chapel is one of the secret treasures of the United Methodist Church. The almost life size wood carving of DaVinci's Last Supper is incredible! The Christian Art museum is filled with paintings, nativities, historic books and writings of the Wesleys, icons, etc. Just can't mention them all. It is a wondrous visit. The gift shop and bookstore... More

Had read about the wall carving of the Last Supper. It was very impressive, but is a really long walk from downtown. Probably could be accessed by public transport.

Was there for a conference, but the Upper Room Chapel has an ornate woodcarving of the last Supper that is beautiful. Bookstore is nice, and there is a small, free museum. Worth stopping by.

The people were very nice and the wooden carving was beautiful! Grounds or garden need a little spruced up but worth a visit.

The Upper Room was within walking distance of our hotel. We were greeted by a very friendly gentleman who offered to show us a video about the chapel and the artwork. The video was about 10 minutes long and worth watching. We then visited the chapel. It's up a flight of stairs. Behind the altar is a beautiful wood carving... More

We watched a video when we arrived detailing information about the stained glass window in the chapel which is really beautiful. The staff was very helpful and the visit is free, but you can...
