Welcome To Precious Moments Chapel

 

 

The Precious Moments Chapel 

The Precious Moments Chapel, in Carthage Missouri, is the creation of artist Samuel J. Butcher as a gift of thanks to God; recognizing the many blessings given by God. The Chapel has often been described as “America’s Sistine Chapel” as an artful representation of Michelangelo’s own Sistine Chapel in Rome.

The Precious Moments Chapel welcomes thousands of visitors annually, offering FREE Chapel tours daily. Serving as one of Missouri’s most beautiful attractions, the Chapel grounds include an inviting Visitor Center, Gift Shoppe, Royal Delights Cafe and beautifully manicured gardens adorned with bronze statues and fountains. The Visitor Center is the home to the world’s largest Precious Moments Gift Shoppe, as well as Chapel Exclusive figurines. The Precious Moments Chapel and grounds are owned and operated by the Precious Moments Supporting Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Funding for the operations of the Chapel and grounds are provided by donations and Gift Shoppe sales which enables the foundation to continue to offer FREE Chapel tours and FREE admission. Thank you for your continued support. We look forward to your visit!
