Trip Planner: USA / Arkansas / Eureka Springs / Thorncrown Chapel
A seemingly open-air chapel in the midst of a forest, Thorncrown Chapel is actually made of organic materials yet glass-enclosed and air-conditioned. The chapel is considered to be a significant influence in the field of architecture. The structure was designed so that each ray of light and change of weather makes the building appear different at every moment. Voluntary donations are accepted.

Thorncrown Chapel reviews
It’s a beautiful piece of architecture. We went in Fall this go around and it was pouring down rain. It was beautiful in the rain!

Surprising to see something as unique, but I'm so glad we went! Very interesting chapel in the woods, a perfect setting.

So lovely!! I don't think I took enough photos and I definitely would love to go again. Perfect place for wedding, engagement or anniversary photos! Anyone who loves photography and old chapels would LOVE this place. My kids and husband enjoyed it as much as I did. I look forward to visiting again when vacationing in Arkansas.
Very beautiful chapel that’s completely worth a stop. Gorgeous views and stunning architecture. It’s so pleasant and delightful. You can bring the whole family, sit inside or browse around. It’s free, which makes it even more of a treat to enjoy!
What a lovely little chapel! The construction is beautiful as is the setting. This is a very peaceful spot to simply sit and be. This was our main motivation for driving down from Branson and we didn't regret it. It was a bit crowded when we went and a large charter bus full of people was pulling in as we were leaving. So glad others get to enjoy this spot but I didn't feel like I could fully explore. There's always next time!
Absolutely beautiful place. Very calm and relaxing. The chapel itself has an interesting story behind it. The scenery is beautiful. If you’re in the area I highly recommend visiting.
Thorncrown Chapel is a MUST SEE in Eureka Springs. The serene feeling inside the chapel is surreal! Beautiful views and plenty of parking. We brought our dog and took turns going inside. Free to go inside but they take donations. You can also get married there...stunning!
