I was here for a very windy spring morning before the gift shop opened. I didn't enter the shrine but enjoyed walking around both the shrine as well as a walkway that has rippling water flowing from the gift shop to the shine. Nearby areas...More

Take a break. This is a peaceful setting to walk, or sit inside the chapel, looking out across the prairie. The story is inspiring so read the wall posters.

The chapel is just lovely and very peaceful, a wonderful setting for prayer or contemplation. The information at Visitor's center was very informative also and the volunteer working that day was able to answer all of our questions. We enjoyed going on the extended path.

This Shrine sets atop a hill and can be seen from Interstate 80, but don't just drive by. There was bridge construction when I visited, but the 3 mile detour was worth it. This building is quite an engineering achievement. Not only are all of...More

A beautiful setting with wildflowers and a nice gift shop. A place to go for quiet reflection. Just off the interstate.

The shrine sitting on top of a hill is beautifully constructed. The water flowing underneath the floor of the shrine is an attractive feature. The completely glass exterior brings in light into the hall. The walkway leading to the shrine from the parking lot is...More

I have visited this shrine in the past and it's a wonderful place to visit. I had wanted to show some friends this shrine while driving through Nebraska only to find the main road to the shrine closed.
