The Charles Dickens exhibit currently at Heritage Green was difficult to get into and a bit of a snooze. Lots and lots of items from the period but the exhibit as a whole does not draw you in or explain very well how these items relate to one another or the period. I would give it a pass.

I'm not an art gallery person, so not looking forward to this venue, which was part of a package of stops on a tour. Wow, was I surprised? This is an EXCELLENT look at the Victorian era told through much more than pieces of art. Part art gallery, more history exhibit, this museum and gallery had interesting artifacts and creative...

A fantastic Christian art collection. The Bible is depicted beautifully. The Saints come alive. My favorites were the portrait of Jesus with tears in his eyes and the Holy Family with Mary feeding Jesus. The intimate Joseph holding the infant and gazing in his eyes. Much preferred the Roman Renaissance. Only drawback was difficulty navigating through the exhibit & the... More

This Museum is amazing. I could spend hours looking at the exquisite Christian art. There are paintings that you would not see anywhere else in the world.

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
