  • The 67-foot tall statue is well worth a stop if you are in Eureka Springs. Admission and parking are free, and it is an easy, short walk from the parking lot to the statue. There is a little bit of....  more »

  • If you're a Christian and/or you enjoy history this is worth the visit! I absolutely loved the Bible museum and they have an actual piece of the Berlin Wall which is very moving. The holy Land tour includes acute heading to call Noah's Ark. History Museum is also worth the visit. Christ of the Ozarks is obviously a great photo op. We visited on a hot day, so that impacted how much of touring we were up to, and I would love to visit the Passion Play as the amphitheatre looked fantastic for that dramatization, but not on a hot day. Next time Eureka!
  • The drive up to Christ of the Ozarks is incredible. Was slightly deceived when viewing the sculpture in person since I imagined it to be much taller. When you see it from the observation tower by the Razorback Gift Shop it seems as though it would be at least 100' tall. Still a very cool place to visit. Would recommend stopping at Magnetic Spring on the way up or on the way back.
  • I was born and raised here and have lived here most of my life. I had never been until recently. The view was amazing. The statue was massive and learning the history of ot was neat. Fun place to visit, especially for families.
  • The people were great and we really enjoyed the time we spent there. I just wish that the petting zoo had been open when we went. My eight year old would have really enjoyed that.
  • This was really cool! We didn't have a chance to take the holy Land tour this time but the statute is amazing. Nice lil area to sit and a cute little gift shop.
