Visitor Center

There are many reasons thousands of people choose to visit Precious Moments Chapel and grounds each year. Once here, most agree it is a place set apart. A place where Loving, Caring, and Sharing are celebrated. Many visitors begin their experience at the Visitor Center, especially designed by Precious Moments artist, Samuel J. Butcher, to reflect the warmth of a small English country village of yesteryear. It is the perfect setting to step out of the everyday world and into a world of Precious Moments.

This little village is also home to the world’s largest Precious Moments Gift Shoppe, Archive Collection, and year round Christmas Shoppe. 

Gift Shoppe

Also in the Gift Shoppe you will find an inspiring collection of Chapel Exclusive figurines, unique to the Chapel and created to support our mission. From here, guests often begin their exploration of the beautiful gardens surrounding the Precious Moments Chapel.
