A truly impressive museum of world class art! Multiple galleries feature sacred masterworks, many epic in scope and size, that bring the great stories of Biblical times to life. The hushed atmosphere and thick carpet, the professional lighting, and the careful restorations make this an exceptional art gallery experience. Highly recommended!

I traveled from the lowcountry of SC specifically to view this museum and it was well worth the trip. I was in the door when it opened at 2pm. I rented the audio guide and opted to take the 3PM tour, offered on Thursday and Fridays. I felt like I had entered another world with the amazing art work and... More

It is something to be seen. If you are in town you should check it out. It is something that you aren't going to see anyplace around. Be sure to have plenty of time to check out all the art. It could take some time.

The Museum and Gallery is superb and breathtakingly beautiful, in both the on campus and downtown locations. It is an inexpensive way to get a rapid immersion in the finest religious art in the world, with Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque masters, massive canvases, carvings, statuary, furnishings, print material, and even a Rembrandt. Get the audio guide, or better yet, go... More

You'll need a couple of hours to see all there is to see in this museum.There are many rooms to cover! Staff is on hand if you have any questions, but they don't intrude on your experience. Friendly but quiet. There is a children's section where it looks like they have classes a workshops, but the rest of the museum... More

Best gallery of religious art from the 14th to the 19th century outside of Europy. Thousands visit each year. Very reasonably priced. Take a stroll on a hot summer day and enjoy the relaxed, refreshing atmosphere.

Don't let your disagreement with BJU politics let you persuade you not to visit the art gallery and museum. One of the most important outside the Vatican! Used in many television specials. A sight to behold that rivals Europe. A truly extraordinary experience. How they put this together, I will never know. But they did. And you need to run... More
