This is a must for art lovers. The museum has one of the finest art collections around with a number of works by the masters. With a very low entrance fee and guided tours available, you can't go wrong. You'll think you're in a European art museum.

We were enthralled from the very first room, and after two hours, we realized we had only seen about 40% of the museum. This is like a trip to Europe without the jet lag! There is nothing like this in the western hemisphere. They are extremely child friendly, with "scavenger hunts" and things for them. Pace yourself. The collection is... More

You must experience this. It can't be described. It's like touring a European museum. Totally unexpected for a mid size town.

We regularly take visitors to Greenville to the museum. The art collection is very extensive in a pleasant setting. As other reviewers have mentioned the paintings are numerous but not loaded with Great Masters. Nonetheless, the museum is well worth a visit.

We went into this museum and were astonished at the huge (!) number of paintings and other artwork from Rembrandt on. Just amazing! The young people who were there in attendance were all very polite and helpful.

Stopped in here on a visit to Greenville. We are art lovers, particularly Italian art , and have seen collections in Italy. Thought the paintings here were numerous but most were good rather than great. There were only a few masters here, including one Tintoretto, one Botticelli, one Veronese. These had more depth to them than most of the others.... More

The museum is great. Plan on a couple of hours on that. Your ticket during Living Gallery times allows free admittance to the museum. Living Gallery is where great art works are shown on stage using real people in the picture. It also comes with a drama. It's amazing!

I have been here one time. The museum is one of the largest Christian art museums around. It is very impressive. I did feel that I had to dress a certain way to go in and I felt like the employees kept following me and staring because I wasn't dressed like they were. It seemed like they were worried I... More

We were attending a play on the campus and the entrance to the museum was included. The displays were incredible. This must be the finest collection of religious art and artifacts in the US. We spent almost two hours and didn't see everything. We intend on returning and bring friends.
