Didn’t get the whole experience since you need a reservation to go inside, but the exterior is cool to see - it’s a uniquely built chapel. Hoping to return again to go inside. The lady managing the door was very kind and told us a few fun facts about the chapel, which was nice!
Have been wanting to visit the Rothko chapel for at least 5 years - so when I vacationed to Houston I made sure it was on the agenda! Unfortunately this was the worst part of my trip by far. The staff were so rude it completely ruined any sort of spirituality which I could have gotten from the experience. Given that the mask mandate was lifted in texas and we’re through the woods of this thing as most people have been vaccinated - I didn’t feel it was justified for me and my friends to be treated as if we were some scourge of the earth. For a place which is supposed to celebrate peace, love, and magic of creativity - the staff make you feel subhuman. We willingly wore masks after we were asked to - but even still everyone glared at us and wouldn’t even approach us (we were masked!) or talk to us as humans. The chapel as I understand it doesn’t usually have tickets in a non-Covid environment - so the new ticket system seems like a little more bustle than necessary with needing to walk across the street to check in and get some carnival tickets which you then hand to the door person. This isn’t even safe! If they could have scanned our mobile tickets at the door we wouldn’t have had to exchange so many pieces of paper which we all touched. Honestly, I wish I wouldn’t have gone. Maybe people aren’t so authoritarian or ‘power hungry’ in normal times. But if you have to get tickets - STAY AWAY unless you want to be treated as if you are a virus, not a human. STAY AWAY!!!!
Wonderful place for meditation/prayer/contemplation. Reflection pool(with the Broken Obelisk)and grove are so serene... The last time I was there a gentleman sat up crystal singing bowls and played for around an hour...
I have been here once before and it was breathtaking for me. It’s a wonderful place to visit. Very tranquil and peaceful. However I have to say my visit today wasn’t as tranquil and peaceful as my first visit. It was way too much talking inside. That should not be. If there aren’t signs up for quiet inside they need to put them up. There were both children and adults talking inside. Why???? It’s a chapel of peace. For this I must rate it 4 stars. The upgrades outside is very nice. Money well spent. I will be back but at a different day and time possibly when less people are around.
An absolutely special place in Houston for Art and Meditation 🧘♂️ lovers. During the pandemic, you need to make a (free) reservation to get in, but it’s definitely worth it. If you are inclined to meditate there, come with your own cushion. They organize pan-religious prayer/meditation events as well, reflecting Houston’s extraordinary diversity (currently virtually only).
