“Educational and inspirational”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

I took my friend from England to the museum and was pleased that they had the exhibit of King James Bibles, including a first edition. That was especially meaningful for my friend. I love the Resurrection Mural, and discovered a variety of works in various media that were exquisite as well as thought-provoking.

“For an art lover you shouldn't miss this!”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

At a great price this Art museum is worth your time. Paintings, sculptures and transcripts. Easy to walk through with audio help. Staff very accommodating. Only down side was some construction going on, other wise a very enjoyable experience.

“Moses - Michelangelo”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

I recently went back to see the Michelangelo exhibit of bronze sculptures and was amazed at the 2-ton Moses by Michelangelo in the central atrium. Really amazing.. wonder how they got it in there!? Also a new exhibit by former SMU art prof, Bill Komodore.. his works are very modern, but colorful and it was a nice tribue to him. Wish we were there when the audio tour was completed.. next time... I hear it is great.. with commentary actually from Mr. Komodore on his art.

“Lovely, peaceful museum”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

This is a lovely museum, seemingly unknown to many. I have lived in Dallas for years and just now decided to visit. A small museum, but many interesting items to see. Lovely exhibit on Jewish tradition and artifacts. The King James Bible section is not to be missed. The entry price comes with an audioguide that lets you go further in depth in certain areas. If you are a fan of Christian art, do not miss this when you are in town.

“Ancient Bibles on temporary exhibit are lovely!”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

How wonderful to have the museum open again! Took my husband for the first time and we were so happy to get to the see collection of ancient Bibles on display. Well worth your time to go see these beautiful works of art. I found it almost shocking to see that some of these had references by the scriptures, like we do in our Study Bibles today.
