My husband and I took a trip to Greenville and stumbled upon the Heritage Green Center. This is an area that houses the different buildings for enrichment ( theater, art, science). Anyway, this free museum is part of the enrichment. I really enjoyed this place and there are people available to answer your questions regarding the art work. We will... More

But then (to follow up on the title) that I suppose is what one should expect from an exhibit run by an ardently religious college. As I keep insisting in these reviews, one more circle in the overall rating section would help -- a "good" would be helpful, in fact why not replace "average," a term I don't find all... More

We took the time to go to both the Art exhibit and the museum. It is well worth the time and money. You'll enjoy it.

This delightful museum on "Museum Row" opposite the Library (also a treat!) offered a wonderful collection of Russian Icon Art, most of which had been brought out of Russian after the Revolution by Armand Hammer. When we got to see it in May 2013, it was beautifully arranged to display a wonderful collection of these icons, filled with gold and... More

Downstairs, the display of Russian History and Art is a visual treat and great educational experience for adults. Upstairs, kids (and adults) will find the hands-on experiences give a memorable introduction to Russia. The staff was very helpful and, unlike a previous reviewer, did not follow us around at all but were happy and enthusiastic to discuss the exhibits. We... More

Though we were not quite sure what part of the exhibit on the second floor represented we found the rst of the museum informative and well curated. Staff was very friendly and helpful and the Icons which I had only previously seen illustrated in books were worth coming to see!

Enjoyed an excellent display of Russian History and Art - Rublev to Fabergé” at the Museum and Gallery at Heritage Green. The priceless art, icons, and jewelry were in the beautifully renovated former 1930 Coca-Cola Bottling Plant building. With plenty of parking it was an easy stroll across the lush grounds of Heritage Green into the wheelchair friendly museum. All... More

I can't believe this is free - great exhibits and don't forget to check out the "Sundays at 23" schedule - we have gone to several events and never were disappointed. The only negative is that there is one employee who follows you around like you are going to steal something and tells you constantly to stay two feet from... More

The Museum & Gallery at Heritage Green is a satellite location of the Bob Jones University Museum & Gallery Inc. The Heritage Green location showcases a wonderful collection of Russian Old Master paintings and priceless works of art. There is even a wonderful exhibit on the second floor that is geared toward teaching children and guests about Russian culture!

The Museum & Gallery at Heritage Green is a wonderful addition to the artistic atmosphere of downtown Greenville. As you enter the exhibit, the time line guides you through a brief history of Russian art and icons. The time line gives a historical perspective to the icons. The centerpiece of this exhibit is the Red Cross Fabergé egg. It would... More
