Visitors enjoy The Upper Room Christian Art Museum, whose permanent collection reflects the international, interracial, and interdenominational ministry of The Upper Room.

From November through January, the museum exhibits The Night of the Child, a collection of over 130 nativity scenes, renditions from paper-mache to exquisite porcelains, carved wood and stone to natural dried seed pods all representing over 40 cultures around the world. Many international Upper Room devotional language editions can be seen within this exhibit. From March through May, guests may view a special Lenten and Easter collection entitled Faces of the Passion of Christ. This exhibit features 70 Ukrainian Eggs, bronze and wooden sculptures and paintings telling the Passion story.

The Upper Room Chapel is the home of a nearly life size woodcarving patterned after Leonardo da Vinci’s painting of The Last Supper. The three dimensional Last Supper is the focal of the chapel’s chancel area with tapestries and an altar identical to the woodcarving. The viewer is invited into the story of The Last Supper. The chapel hosts thousands of visitors each year. Speakers from different denominations and countries take part in the weekly Wednesday morning worship service.
