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

The museum was so beautiful. There is a self guided tour which explains everything in the museum. They have a great gift shop also. I wish that I would have had more time to spend there. Make sure that you give yourself enough time to see everything.

On our recent trip to Dallas we used tripadvisor to pick our attractions as well as recommendations from a friend who lives there. Since both suggested the museum we decided to add it to our trip. It was very interesting and worthwhile. The bonus was that I found a Groupon for the admission so it made it even sweeter! The... More

Visited Several Times before the Fire in 2004. This was our first trip back and it was worth the trip. Enjoyed the Bible exhibit and the Thomas Kincade Collection on loan to the Museum. I got us a GROUPON Pass and it was well worth the half price admission. The staff was very friendly and helpful and we enjoyed out... More

My husband and I, along with our 15 year old, thoroughly enjoyed our visit and plan to go again. It was a lot to take in on one trip. So many old Bibles, so many manuscripts to see. It makes you appreciate love and appreciate the history of bibles. To be able to see hundreds of pieces of the Dead... More

Yes there are a few tacky pieces but most of the art here is interesting and well laid out. There are several outstanding pieces as well some amusing pieces. Well worth a visit.

Rebecca Harris wedding coordinator at the Biblical Arts museum makes trying to plan your wedding at this location virtually impossible. She is totally inaccessible most times, she doesn't return emails or calls. If you set up meetings with her she doesn't show or sends a replacement. I wouldn't recommend this location for you wedding day if she's in charge. It... More

As family come to visit us in our new home, many ask to visit this quiet museum and reflect on its meaning.
