Visitor Info

a new experience every time you visit

You are here.

The Rothko Chapel is like nothing you’ve ever experienced. Come as you are, and while you’re here, feel free to meditate, view our treasured works of art, focus attention inward, or just let go of the chaos of the world for a while.

Admission is free. Donations are appreciated. All are welcome.

Every visit is its own unique experience, building on the one that came before it. Let your journey of discovery start today and lead to a lifetime of growth, contemplation, and action.

Please take care to respect the Chapel and its visitors by preserving the silence within the Chapel, refraining from using cameras, and maintaining a safe distance from our beloved artwork.

The Chapel is generally open every day of the year from 10 AM - 6 PM.  On occasion, it closes to the general public for programs and private services. Please check today’s hours and calendar before your visit. For additional questions, email or call 713.524.9839.

Chapel Grounds

The Rothko Chapel grounds are a welcoming, calming green space. The grounds act as an extension of the Chapel itself, making them an ideal place to reflect on your experience of the Chapel and the Broken Obelisk, or simply have a moment of solitude and escape from the outside world.

We invite you to come, immerse yourself in the tranquility of the grounds, and experience the stillness.
