  • Enjoyed touring the area and reading the history. A good place for a hobby photographer. We were able to see the Christ of the Ozarks from various locations around the area.  more »
  • This is an amazing statue and the history behind it is also amazing! Wouldn't be a trip to Eureka Springs without seeing !!!  more »
  • This statue used to be more thrilling when I was younger & was able to see it for miles around. It was being repaired when we visited so the scaffolding took away from some of the uniqueness . If you'...  more »

  • 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.
  • It's pretty awesome to stand next to the second largest Christ statue in the world (Rio being number one). I like stopping by here every time I come in to Eureka Springs.
  • This is a very special place. I did not see the museum or the passion play, but just had time to enjoy the statue of Jesus and the little church there by the bottom of the statue. I am a strong follower of Jesus and love to see things wherever I go that witness to something about Him or His Word. I must confess that I went to this thinking it would be a cheesy tourist thing like a big ball of twine, or a plastic Paul Bunyan. I was totally blown away by the presence of the Holy Spirit in this place. The view is exceptional and the statue of Jesus is tasteful and inspired. It is sad that they did it in plaster and wood frame because it needs a constant upkeep, but clearly the people who made it were in The Spirit. The little church house at the base of the statue is very sweet as well. This litttle church house is a great place to pray. You can really feel God's presence all over the place. I do suggest that even if you only have 1/2 hour it is worth the trip out from the highway to come here. I think you will be blessed.
