It did have a few interesting exhibits, especially the King James Bible exhibit. The resurrection mural was pretty good. most of the other were just average pieces. They are still working on their outdoor exhibits.

Went to the MBA this week with my two daughters, ages 11 and 13. Our absolute favorites were Vladimir Gorsky's Tapestry of the Centuries, and Victor Bregeda's outstanding works. Loved the collection of biblical texts. We haven't stopped talking about everything we saw. Out of all the things we did in Dallas, this was our favorite. Great docents, nice gift... More

We went to this museum to see The Resurrection Mural by Ron DiCianni. This experience alone was worth the visit, but the rest of the museum was wonderfully inspiring. Excellent docent and wonderful collections.

I am glad I went to visit, but it just wasn't for me. I am not sure what I was expecting, but I will not be back or recommend to my friends.

My wife and I visited here in early May 2014. Plenty of parking as well as no-fee entry to the museum for military. The prime reason for our visit, the Resurrection painting, was truly impressive. I also found the collection of early King James(circa 1610) fascinating. Wish they had one of their Wycliff bibles on display. Regretfully photography was not... More

Made me thankful hearing the history of preserving my freedom to read my Bible!! Loved the Resurrection Mural (our main reason for coming) the Tapestry of the Century was great. 350 scenes spanning 2000 years. My favorite was the Herald Angel. The white angel is by Fredrick Hart born in Atlanta 1943 raised in Conway Sc. Died 1999. He did... More

What a surprise to see valuable art on display in this small, but empowering museum! Donatello's David was one of the first statues that we saw with the gold accents. Gib Singleton's (the one who repaired the "Pieta" in Rome) molds for the 911 display were there. The Resurrection of Christ mural was outstanding. He used different artists for the... More

I stopped by the museum in January of 2014, on a Sunday. It has a small entrance fee, and donation box if you wish to donate to the cause. There were several good, and well-exhibited sections in the museum. I was looking for more classic pieces, but the museum is mostly modern and contemporary. But, do not let that stop... More

My son took my husband and I here and it was a very interesting museum. They give you a audio guide which you punch the number in for the item you want information on. It took us a few hours but no one rushed us at all. Very informative and interesting. The staff are quite helpful.

Definitely not worth a visit. There was a special exhibit called "The temptation", which ended up being paintings of donuts and cupcakes etc. I wasn't expected to see something that ridiculous in a biblical arts museum. The only item of interest we a large selection of old bibles, some from the 1500. There were some small statue replicas of works... More
