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.

Greatly enjoyed the gallery, and what's more...... to be on a college campus where the students are friendly, appeared well adjusted, and nicely groomed. I'm so tired of seeing the sloppy atmosphere most places in the world present. As we crossed the campus everyone seemed happy, eager to answer our questions, and warm. Nice to know places like this still... More

Be sure to get the audio headset to guide you through this spectacular museum. The campus is just lovely.

This smaller museum is packed full of very valuable European paintings, many on a religious theme. Some of the greatest old masters are represented. It is located on the Bob Jones campus, but there is a smaller one near the downtown library with revolving exhibits. If you are an art lover, don't miss this.

Saying that BJU's art museum is "World Class" is a big claim but I have been to some of the finest galleries and museums in Europe and BJU compares favorably. You will run out of time before you run out of things to marvel at.

We had visitors from out of town and were looking for something to do. Well I suggested the Museum and off we went. What a pleasant surprise. We toured the entire exhibit and understand that the Bob Jones Museum and Gallery is second largest collection of religious(Vatican, Rome, Italy is the largest) art in the world. We have lived in...
