4.3/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web
Christ of the Ozarks stands as Arkansas' version of Rio de Janeiro's famous Christ the Redeemer statue. Built in 1967 by one of the sculptors of Mt. Rushmore, this statue stands 20 m (66 ft) tall and features a modernistic and minimalistic style with little facial expression. The statue is lit up at night.

  • Beautiful statue & setting. Not highly ADA accessible - there are ramps, not stairs, but pretty steep. My scooter wouldn't tolerate the steep ramps. 
  • Beautiful giant statue! Never seen anything like it. Doesn't take long to visit if you just need something to take up a half hour. 
  • On the property of the Great Passion Play, it is free to the public. It can be seen for miles around. 
  • 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.
  • This is my 5th time here and will sure to be back here next time. You will feel you're in a sacred place. Close to where you want to be. For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
  • Favorite stop of my trip. :) Definitely worth the stop! And you can see him from different areas in Eureka. The Bible Museum was amazing!!! They have the only full book of the Dead Sea Scrolls and a Bible that came over on the Mayflower. Informative 15 min video.
  • My family and I were there yesterday and it was absolutely beautiful..... a little windy, but a nice spring day. The statue is cool.... looks like some work going on.... way cool. I encourage other folks to go enjoy Eureka Springs and check out the Christ of the Ozarks! Can't wait to go back and watch the passion play!!
  • You feel so close to God. Been there with my family . such good memories.Its Gods country.the passion play is beautuful to see also.
