A stepford experience with holier than thou staff. Art work is ok, save for Trip to Rome to get the full, non preaching experience.

Anyone that appreciates the art of the Old Masters will enjoy the Bib Jones Museum and Gallery. Over thirty rooms of well displayed works. One of the best things, however, were the staff. Our guide was excellent and the only thing we could have asked for was more time. I assume most of the people you come in contact with... More

This religious art work is the largest and finest to be found in the United States. It is very uplifting and displayed in a tasteful manner. Would recommend for all the family to view.

I was surprised at how large this collection was. It's not the MET and you're not going to find many of the great masters here. A lot of is is run of the mill medieval renaissance stuff, but nonetheless, there is some great history here and to find a collection like this in the middle of Greenville is pretty cool.... More

The artwork was absolutely breathtaking and the paintings, artifacts, etc. were beautifully displayed. The tour guide was very knowledgable and we would certainly go again. What a priceless collection!

The gallery is absolutely a special place to see some incredible art .... amazing both artistically and historically. Totally unique for anywhere in the country. Works by amazing artists. Take time to read up on the artists and the different art periods in history. It is incredibly interesting. A quiet and peaceful way to spend some leisure time. Audio tour... More

Upscale but low budge art gallery, they do not recommend or enjoy children and they want or give them impression to be a HUGE Upscale gallery but its not, I had a free pass but would not recommend paying unless you just enjoy that sort of thing but I would recommend taking that money and getting a dinner somewhere instead.

This small but very interesting museum has art that would make many large museums quite envious. Many large works by established masters grace the walls. The place is attractive and nicely laid out. The staff is friendly and not overbearing, but helpful when you want information. There are many types of work, including wood and architectural pieces as well. Inexpensive... More

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.
