Three million Christians around the world know the Upper Room Daily Devotional Guide, a page-a-day pocket devotional available in 106 countries and 40 languages. Headquartered in Nashville , the Upper Room Ministry has established a bookstore, museum, and chapel to welcome visitors.
The Upper Room Chapel and Museum (1908 Grand Ave., 615/340-7207, www.upperroom.org/chapel , Mon.–Fri. 8 a.m.–4:30 p.m., free) features a small museum of Christian-inspired art, including a wonderful collection of nativity scenes from around the world made from materials ranging from needlepoint to camel bone.
Visitors may also tour the chapel, with its 8-foot-by-20-foot stained-glass window and 8-foot-by-17-foot wood carving of Leonardo DaVinci’s The Last Supper. A 15-minute audio presentation discusses features of the carving and tells the history and mission of the Upper Room.
Admission to the Upper Room is free; donations are accepted.
