No doubt there are old paintings here, some important, most not very, and a few, in my opinion, copies of the originals they are supposed to be. Many of the furnishings, ecclesiastical and otherwise, appear to be fakes being passed off as originals (you don't tack labels to authentic antiquities). This is actually a rather unexciting collection. But aside from... More

At the recommendation of our relatives we visited this outstanding Gallery. We lucked into a guided tour (3 PM Tuesday & Thursday) which was extremely informative and cost only $3 in addition to admission. While most of the art consists of oil paintings, the exhibit also includes frescos, some furniture and sculptures. This is a moving exhibition for visitors of... More

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
