“Beautiful art work”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2013

The museum was so beautiful. There is a self guided tour which explains everything in the museum. They have a great gift shop also. I wish that I would have had more time to spend there. Make sure that you give yourself enough time to see everything.

“Wonderful find!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2013

On our recent trip to Dallas we used tripadvisor to pick our attractions as well as recommendations from a friend who lives there. Since both suggested the museum we decided to add it to our trip. It was very interesting and worthwhile. The bonus was that I found a Groupon for the admission so it made it even sweeter! The Thomas Kincade exhibit was wonderful and a little unusual for the artist's know style of painting. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. We all enjoyed this museum.

“Worth the Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2013

Visited Several Times before the Fire in 2004. This was our first trip back and it was worth the trip. Enjoyed the Bible exhibit and the Thomas Kincade Collection on loan to the Museum. I got us a GROUPON Pass and it was well worth the half price admission. The staff was very friendly and helpful and we enjoyed out day.

“Historical, lots to see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

My husband and I, along with our 15 year old, thoroughly enjoyed our visit and plan to go again. It was a lot to take in on one trip. So many old Bibles, so many manuscripts to see. It makes you appreciate love and appreciate the history of bibles. To be able to see hundreds of pieces of the Dead Sea Scrolls...we thought it was amazing.

“Don't be put off by the title!”

Yes there are a few tacky pieces but most of the art here is interesting and well laid out. There are several outstanding pieces as well some amusing pieces. Well worth a visit.
