This museum has an amazing amount of religious art, especially for a city the size of Greenville. Would highly recommend seeing this if in the area.

Many pieces by famous masters. Nearly all with religious relevance. Considerate and aimiable staff. If you are not into religious art, don't bother.

A fantastic Christian art collection. The Bible is depicted beautifully. The Saints come alive.
