Welcome To The Precious Moments Visitor Center

The beauty and peace of the Precious Moments Chapel and Gardens is first experienced in the parking lot of the Visitor Center. Walking paths lined with bright-colored flowers and butterfly bushes lead past two stately bronze horses, to a breathtaking fountain of angels. Take a break on one of the wooden picnic tables adjacent to the ample parking lot.

Make A Joyful Noise

In addition to being the home of the Precious Moments Gift Shoppe, the Visitor Center boasts another can't miss attraction! The 13-foot tall replica of one of the Original 21 Precious Moments Figurines, Make A Joyful Noise, is the perfect backdrop for family photos marking your visit to the Precious Moments Chapel and Gardens.

A Charming Visit To A European Village

A few steps along the faux cobblestone path inside the Precious Moments Visitor Center guests are treated to the sights of a charming European-style village. Clever Precious Moments animated dolls "repair" the rooftops, peer down from open windows, and entertain visitors.
