The Bob Jones University Museum & Gallery houses one of the largest collections of old master paintings in the United States, featuring works from the 14th through the 19th centuries by Rubens, Tintoretto and van Dyck, among others. In addition to art, the museum is also home to the Bowen Collection of Antiquities, exhibiting artifacts from ancient Egyptian, Roman and Hebrew cultures.
Recent visitors were surprised at the quality and size of the museum's collection, saying it was one of the finest assortments of Christian art in the southeast. Many called it a "must-see" and some noted that the audio guide rental was worth the extra $5. Meanwhile, locals say the museum is the best deal in town, touting the admission discounts for children and seniors.
Located about 3 miles from Falls Park on the campus of Bob Jones University, the museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Enter through the main gate and the security guard will direct you to the museum and free parking spaces. Admission costs $7 for adults, $6 for seniors and $5 for students. Children 12 and younger enter for free. Tickets and audio guides can be purchased on the website. Note: The museum is closed for renovations through 2019.
