  • Have visited many times and sorry it is leaving University premises but downtown it will probably get many more visitors. The old museum building will either be repurposed or torn down as it is one...

  • I have lots of good memories of this place. I was in charge of *lightly and carefully* cleaning the works of art. I was also a gallery guard. This was around 79 to 83. The staff were very friendly and professional. I hope the gallery reopens soon! At end of our guard shift we always had to search our section for "bombs and bodies". I remember also that the ladies, especially Mrs. Poindexter, trying to catch us in the act of sitting down on the job. One time Dr. Bob Jr. saw me on a ladder going over a huge painting with a cleaning brush (I think it was The Ascension, Gustave Dore) and expressed concern downstairs but was told I was being careful.
  • This is my favorite museum of European Christian art the last millennium in the entire state and there is nowhere I have seen this art that it's so holy and beautiful. reminds me of my Treasures in Heaven and everyone should see this Museum .people would realize that Jesus Christ is Lord they could see this museum actually wish I could start a charity that would give transportation and Museum these so that old people and people who are dying of cancer and deadly diseases could go to these museums and see their Treasures in Heaven and then maybe they wouldn't be afraid of dying
