  • We were visiting family in Huntsville and decided to take a drive down, we were not disappointed! The artistic work and such detail is amazing! Definitely worth a visit! The staff was very friendly too. We purchase a groupon and saves a little money.
  • The grotto itself is magnificent. Quiet and peaceful atmosphere. Spend as much time as you want admiring the miniatures. Bloomin' Festival is lots of fun. Great variety of artists and craftsmen, food and music!
  • Beautiful and unique attraction. This place has an interesting history and beautiful attraction. Plan to spend about 30 minutes to an hour just in observation and reflection. A true work of art.
  • This a wonderful place to ponder the inner being with prayer and contemplation. Brother Joseph had a sense of humor, as seen in his chipmunk crossing. There are a couple of shines dedicated to Veterans that made the ultimate sacrifice.
  • If you like seeing one of a kind attractions you'll love the grotto. So many tiny buildings (So are very detailed and some are pretty odd), and a peaceful area to walk around. Usually you can find a discount on Groupon for a better price.
