“Great Museum, but poor service”
Reviewed February 9, 2012

We have had a few private events here and the place is wonderful. The location is in a good part of town, across the street from North Park Mall, and the facility is beautiful and affordable. However, I left something there and called repeatedly to see if they found it, yet never received a returned call.

“Inspired Beyond Measure!”
Reviewed January 31, 2012

My friends and I remembered the museum before it burned and were expecting to spend about 30 - 45 minutes viewing it. We had intended to do lunch and then run down to the DMA to see another exhibit. Three hours later we went to lunch and talked all afternoon about the incredible art we had seen. I have already spoken to 3 different people about going to see it again. I could have stayed there for the rest of the day and been perfectly happy. There is such a variety of art. The staff is wonderful, very friendly and informative. The only thing I would like is if there would be more detailed placards by each work. I prefer to read the information rather than listen to it on headphones.

“a MUST SEE in Dallas!”
Reviewed January 27, 2012

The Museum of Biblical Art has really risen from the ashes! It's the most beautiful and inspirational museum in Dallas. The 40 foot Resurrection Mural is absolutely incredible. We spent almost an hour just in front of that magnificent painting, marveling at the beauty, history and magnitude of that masterpiece. Ron Dicianni did an incredible work of art that can now be shared with the whole world. And the cloud of witnesses from the bible look so real, you want to talk to them. The room of Jewish art, spanning centuries of history also is wonderfully fascinating, as is the room with the gold and silver art works from the feasts of the Lord. Equally enchanting are the sketches of israel and the surrounding areas done in the late 1800's. In the center of the Museum is a painting that spans several centuries of history, with famous faces throughout time. It's a walk through time that is not to be missed and makes you think about the days we are in now. There are Gib Singleton sculptures throughout the museum that are really beautiful! The MBA is a truly fascinating and wonderful experience that needs 2 to 3 hours to fully appreciate. We highly recommend it!

“Worth a stop”
Reviewed January 25, 2012

Museum was good, not great. Much of the art is reproductions or models from which the statuary was cast. Much of the art is modern Jewish art dealing with the holocast or eastern european life. Some nice 17th century torahs and cases. The highlight for us was a temorary exhibit of King James bibles but again that was a temporiary exhibit.
