  • Beautiful views everywhere! It seems to be located at one of the highest points in Eureka Springs, which is a gorgeous sight to begin with. The Christ of the Ozarks grounds are kept fairly neat, and the few people that were working up there were friendly and informative upon entering. It's a must-see for anyone visiting NWA, as well as any locals that have yet to experience it.
  • A great place to visit for a scenic and calm view of Eureka Springs. The second of ten most famous large Christ statues I’ve seen and even though it isn’t the largest, it was just as breathtaking. Come during the early morning or late afternoon for the best photos!
  • Not a lot to this place, but the sincerity and peacefulness of the structure is a thrill in itself. I find it calm and majestic and enjoy being among other people in its presense. It may just bring a tear to your eye.
  • 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.
  • Used to go there as a child and wanted to show my own family. We made a quick visit there and took some pictures. You should at least go once just to experience it all.
