  • The place is a marvel of architectural, full of fine details within the Campus of the University of Chicago. It is not a religion in particular, but it aspires to bring together the spirituality of the human being. Inside the relevant elements are amazing Monumental organ and the chimes that you can visit 11:30 am and 4:30 pm. The visit to the chimes you can leverage to take photos from the top of the tower.

  • Beautiful chapel that has free access. Is very close to the Oriental Institute and the Robie House. Part of this package of attractions at the University of Chicago. It's amazing the organ sound!!!! We didn't do the tour, but it's a great excuse to visit the place again!

  • A beautiful impressive site and both events I attended here were enhanced by the place as well as the acoustics. Calling it a chapel is certainly a misnomer....
  • Beautiful multipurpose space. Perhaps not the greatest viewing angles in back but I've always gone early.
  • The majestic Rockefeller Memorial Chapel, at 200 feet, is the tallest building at the University of Chicago. The lavender garden is beautiful as are the many wood and stone carvings and the intricate ceiling. Come hear one of the largest carillons in the world. One of the best times to see the Rockefeller Chapel is the one weekend in October each year when it is open to the Chicago Architectural Foundation's Open House Chicago. Amazing.
  • Massive and beautiful. A true gem of the south side. When I came here it was completely empty and it was nice to just sit and take it all in. Also, make sure to check out the schedule of the chapel, as they hold live concerts.
  • Beautiful old building with a glorious sense of History.
