We were shocked at the quality and size of the collection of paintings, sculptures and furniture at this gallery. It is an incredible collection of world-renowned 15th century and later paintings and other works of art. The audio guide for $5 is a good investment. This is a must see. It took us 2 hours and we could have spent... More

The most valuable asset in Greenville (in my opinion), Grandchildren describe is as 'awesome!' It is reasonable entrance fee of $5 and discounted for children and seniors. Best deal in Greenville.

Had the pleasure of visiting the Museum with a friend and it was well worth the time! Hard to believe it was in my town and I did not know about it. When you get to the gate, simply tell the guard you are going to the Museum and he will direct you. There are some awesome displays of religious... More

Among the finest collection of Christian art in the Southeast. The original works by great masters are amazing, from the Reubens and Rembrandt to the woodcuts and pieces of churches transported from all across Europe. It is only $5 to visit and parking is free.

This is a must-see for everyone who visits the area - especially for your artistic friends and family. The art ranges from Gothic to Baroque, mostly, but a small area is available with ancient Egyptian and Roman artifacts. The frames and furniture are amazing and all of the work has been set in beautifully designed rooms.

The collection of art work at the BJU Museum and Gallery is breathtaking. To gather such a collection must have been one's passion over many years. The individual rooms are so tastefully appointed so that they cause the works of art to stand out. The "Shepherd Boy" was my absolute favorite. Be sure to allow yourself plenty of time as... More

If there is only one place to visit in the upstate of SC, select BJU University's Extraordinary Art Museum and Gallery. If you can leave in less than an hour it will be the dinner bell or church bell calling. Every time I visit two hours fly by and I ask many questions with excellent tours provided. Call ahead for...

The 7.00 entry fee is worth getting to experience the seemingly endless collection of European religious art. It's the largest collection of Baroque period art in the western hemisphere. The art is very accessible and is not roped off so stay aware if you have kids with you. We left them at home. There is no photography allowed but take... More

I did a organized group tour and was just amazed on how much I learned, just how special the art is and a wonderful, very knowledgeable staff! Greenville and Bob Jones University are very fortunate to have this amazing European collection of religious art!

We recently had the privilege of introducing people to the Museum and Gallery. They are not art connoisseurs, and I had no idea that they would enjoy the M&G for over 2.5 hours! They went through slowly, enjoyed reading the well-written documentation on various pieces, and they went home bragging about the M&G. It is an extraordinary collection, presented in... More
