Upper Room Reviews & Ratings

  • This was a beautiful place. The gardens are so peaceful. Everyone was so friendly. May God bless your mission.

  • Extremly cool place with absolutely incredible historic pieces daring back hundreds of years. I couldn't find a great deal of information on on it but decided to go and take a chance. It was well worth the risk! Beautiful place, interesting pieces displayed very well so you can see up close. Loved the place.

  • A fantastic place to visit while in Nashville.

  • WOW! The video presentation prior to the start of our visit really helped us to understand what we would see. The Chapel is beautiful as was the prayer room and the outside Agape Garden. Another highlight is the Museum which I believe is a must view. I Highly Recommend a Visit to the Upper Room in Nashville, Tennessee.

  • Love the info of the Lord's Supper Table in the chapel! I found many Christmas gifts in the gift store!!
