New Virtual Tour Presents Chapel's Sights and Sounds

Copied URL to clipboard

A new 360-degree virtual tour presents the sights and sounds of Duke Chapel with highlights and anecdotes from the building's history. Watch it here:

The twelve-minute, narrated video shows the statues at the entrance, the vaulted ceiling in the main sanctuary, the beauty of the stained-glass windows, the underground resting place of some the university's past leaders, and the stunning view from the top of the Chapel's tower. It also showcases music from the Chapel's organs, carillon, and choir—and even sermon snippets from famous preachers.

The Chapel is currently closed to visitors, but all are invited to participate online in the life of the Chapel through worship services, prayer requests, connections to Religious Life groups, recordings of sacred music, daily carillon recitals, our #FindSanctuary initiative, and more.
