We enjoyed touring this museum. Many great pieces of art on display portraying biblical and world history. Statues, wall pieces, and artist concepts throughout. A hand held device is given and by entering a three digit code you can discover the meaning behind or artists thoughts into putting the piece(s) together. Great for those studying in the faiths, children, and... More

This was my third trip to the museum over the past 25 years. However, it was my first time since it was rebuilt after the fire. I didn't think I could have enjoyed it any more than my previous visits, but I did. Also,I highly recommend the audio tour which is FREE! Also, the staff are very friendly and accommodating.

You can find beautiful pieces of art. In my opinion, the most beautiful pieces were the Thomas Kinkade's and Thomas Blackshear's.

Regardless of your religious affiliation, this museum is worth a visit. They represent a diverse group of artists and art styles. It is laid out well and is easy to navigate. Well worth the $12 admission.

The Museum has a lot of interesting pieces of arts for people who are fond of his type of art. However, I think the admission price is a bit too much for the amount of pieces exhibited.

If you don't see the little sign on the street, you will miss it. Like we did. Entry fee about $10 p/p. The museum is divided into thematic areas: sculpture, Judaic art, Modern art and such. You get a wand which describes the different displays. You can rush through it in an hour or spend half a day. They have... More

The visit was fun, but the collection seems to have no common theme. There are Warhols paintings of angels. There are reproductions of some Michelangelos. There are even some Kincades (which I have never seen in a museum). So the collection is eclectic at best. They did have some nice european art and a great Jewish display. The outside garden...

What an enjoyable museum! There are many 16-17th century artworks, including modern paintings. They have an excellent collection of ancient bibles that range in date from the early most A.D. I can't say enough of what I experienced. Excellent!
