“Certainly worth a stop.”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

This church adjacent park is a wonderland of religious themed outsider art. A testament to the tenacity of one man's faith, this creation is amazing to behold. Even non believers can admire the artistry and grandiosity of this monument. Also there is a church thrift shop next door, and they have great bargains. This is a worthwhile place to stop for a half hour if you are in the area.

“Just Off The Main Drag”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

I read about the Grotto in the Wisconsin State Journal and decided to check it out. It is a geological and religious wonder. A hidden gem just off 151 and well worth my drive. If you have kids, stop at Kuepers Park(right behind the gift shop).

“intersting”

Certainly an attraction with a difference. Once you get up close it is amazing what this grotto is made up of. Rocks from all round the world. Mix of spiritual and the earth.

“well worth the drive”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

WOW-- that is the only word that can describe this creation. It is amazing, and you see a new thing every time you look closely at an area. The people are extremely nice and helpful. We could have spent several hours here, but our schedule did not permit that, however I am sure we will be going back.
