It is beautiful and I did not expect to see such a great art collection. Staff could be a little friendlier.

I've been to many museums, but this is definitely the highest quality of them all that I've ever been to. The age and magnificence of the artwork is something to marvel. I would recommend this attraction to anyone.

This is by far the best exhibit I have ever seen! They even made the streets and walls look "old world". The computer screens with real people acting out different situations from years ago made me realize how much better women have it today! The upstairs with it's 3D clock display is so inventive and the Christmas scene is beautiful... More

There were many amazing art pieces. I had no idea how many interpretations there were of the life of Christ. It's a lot of walking but there are benches along the way.

This place is truly overwhelming on a first visit. We have been several times and just now can stop and appreciate things without feeling like I have to walk it all each trip. Always check days, times, and gates that are open when you plan to go. This is on the campus and they can adjust their hours.

The day I visited the BJU Museum & Gallery the museum was open for 3 hours. I toured for 2.5 hours. The artwork presented was incredible. Paintings from different artists as far back as the 1600's had vibrant colors. It was the best thing I did in 2015.

In Greenville and not sure how to spend a afternoon. Check out the Art museum at Bob Jones. Inspiring artwork from the 1500- 1700s

Big and well maintained library and museum that is so educational as well as informative in all religious aspect. I want the museum of the History of Bible on the other side of the University.

This is a truly amazing museum of art. If you are interested in religious art, you will be blown away by this wonderful museum tucked away in Bob Jones University. It has a relatively small collection, but really high quality examples from all eras, especially pre-renaissance.

The museum's structure itself transports you into Europe. The paintings are masterful. The exhibits are awesome. We had a private tour of some of the key pieces and it brings such insight into what you are seeing. Enjoy!
