The Museum and Gallery at Bob Jones University is located in an unassuming building on campus. The non-assuming structure belies a vast collection of over 400 paintings, 200 pieces of furniture and more than 1000 antiquities that Dr. Bob Jones Jr. amassed during his lifetime.
The museum has been located on campus and open to the public since 1965. As you walk into the dimly-lit but grand foyer, a large chandelier, thick draperies and tapestries adorn the walls and ceiling. The tapestries, sculptures and period furniture are just part of the world-famous collection that opened in 1951 and features cultural and religious history works from the 14th through 19th centuries.
