    They were closed when we went but you're still able to view everything. The statue of Christ is humongous! I'm surprised you can't see if from Missouri! There was a few caged animals on the property. ...  more »

    This was a nice place to visit for a quick trip to an attraction. It’s not far from town. The statue is huge and sits on a quiet little piece of land on top of the mountain. There is a very nice view ...  more »

    Well, it's cool that it exists, and the area is nice, but I've carefully chewed sticks of string cheese into better looking pieces of art.

    This is a must-see if you are staying in Eureka Springs. We also stopped by the gift shop while we were visiting the monument. Inside the gift shop there was a bible museum with hundreds of historical bibles. It was very interesting.

    Neat place for a pit stop. Very well-kept and clean area. The story of how it was created is cool as well. They have info on that at the site.

    Very beautiful, the statue is open year round, and I believe the gift shop is too. It's free to go see the statue, and it is surprisingly easy to get to (we thought we'd have to drive up crazy hills, but no). Fantastic view of Eureka and a great experience.

    Well.... it's not a piece of art but it is what it is.
