  • It's absolutely beautiful and the statue is gorgeous. They have free viewing of the statue day and night. They have plays setup on schedules about Jesus and his life. They have a Catholic Church that is beautiful from the inside out. The gift shop has a variety of items ranging from the play, the statue, and Eureka Springs including a small museum of artifacts. The entrance is a beautiful greeting of a smaller statue surrounded by a water founder.
  • Highly recommend. Just a great feeling to be there. The structure and it's history.
  • Beautiful and extremely tall statue of Jesus, if memory serves me it is 67 feet high with outstretched arms that are 65 feet in width. It is accessed from "The Great Passion Play " In Eureka Springs, Arkansas.
  • So beautiful! We saw him from the crescent hotel and we had to see the statue in person.
  • I like to visit the Christ of the Ozarks every time I go to Eureka Springs. It is high on a hill overlooking the town. It is majestic and a great contribution to the Ozark hills. Only a few minutes from downtown.
