Walking the Stations of the Cross
Walk with Him
Located at The Cloisters on the Platte, the Stations of the Cross is a 2,500 foot long walking tour comprised of 14 sculpture stations that represent Christ’s trial through his burial.
The Stations of the Cross is open for tours during the following times: Sunday from 3pm to 6pm, Monday through Wednesday from 9am to 6pm, and Thursday from 9am to 1pm. Please plan to arrive at least one hour prior to closing in order to allow enough time to walk The Stations. It is not necessary to call in advance of your visit. Groups of 20 or more should contact us a week in advance.
We will have special hours for our gift shop and The Stations of the Cross over Easter weekend as follows:
Holy Thursday (April 18) 9:00 – 4:00
Good Friday (April 19) 9:00 – 4:00
Holy Saturday (April 20) 9:00 – 4:00
Closed Easter Sunday (April 21)
Visitors are encouraged to make a donation of $10 or more. With each donation, visitors will receive a complementary audio tour. Donations support The Cloisters on the Platte and the Stations of the Cross. When you arrive, please park in the parking lot across from main gate. Shuttle service from the parking lot operates throughout hours of operation and will provide entry for our guests to the Stations of the Cross.
