You must see this collection! It is amazing! It opens at 2:00 pm and closes at 5:00 pm. You need every bit of that time. Dress warm as the air conditioning is kept very low. We were not offered the audio tour, and I think that would have been better. The priceless pieces of art are amazing. The paintings are... More

I invited a friend to join me on a visit to this art museum yesterday. I called as we entered the campus and a sweet lady was happy to direct us to the museum. Unfortunately, we only allowed ourselves about 2 hours for our visit. We payed the reasonable admission fee ($5 per person, with another $5 for the audio... More

The entire experience was A-One! Top Notch. We went for their special event of Living Art and was completely enthralled with the entire program and how extremely professional it was! Parking was a concern for me but it was a piece of cake! The fact that with the paid ticket for the even you can also go into their galleries... More

Museum and Gallery were fun to visit, but Living Gallery play was excellent, wonderful way to spend time at Easter time.

This small gallery comprises representative examples of some of the finest religious art in the area (and, lest the word "religious" seem too limiting, consider that it has been a subject of most artists until the 20th Century. Unlike most such collections, which have minor works by major artists, this one focuses on major works by lesser-known names (although, truth... More

small collection by some standards, but so many quality pieces to enjoy... I like the beauty and diversity of this collection. I dislike that the museum and gallery is ONLY OPEN for 3 hours each afternoon Tuesday-Sunday. There is too much to see in 3 hours on one afternoon. MOREOVER, I think that the M&G needs to have a study... More

Smallish, boutique museum featuring a Victorian-themed exhibit (exhibits changed on some schedule) that is artfully staged, cleverly conceived, and fun to explore. Friendly staff. While nothing in the exhibit was jaw-dropping, the total experience was a delight. We certainly would encourage Anglophiles and bibliophiles to dash over to the gallery.

There are 28 galleries in the museum, and the collection is amazing. You can see an authentic Rembrandt, and works by Rubens, van Dyck, and many others. There are altars, sculptures, and period furniture. The art dates back to the 13th century. In addition to the art, they have an antiquities collection with artifacts that span 37 centuries with pieces... More

I jewell in Greenville. This religious collection is presented in the most beautiful environment. All paintings displayed in unique, wooden antique frames...some displayed in church environment, as above an altar. It's a huge collection that takes a couple of hours to go through. Can't say enough about it!! Just lovely. Several of the old master's works included in this..If you... More
