Discounted Admission to the Museum of Biblical Art

Posted by Jennifer Carles on Friday, January 17th, 2020 at 2:30 PM
The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the Full Disclosures!

Today only, head to Groupon to score deeply discounted admission to the Museum of Biblical Art in Dallas! Choose from Three Options:

  • $18 for general admission for two ($24 value)
  • $34 for general admission for four ($48 value)
  • $49 for general admission for six ($72 value)

General admission grants visitors access to the museum’s assorted galleries and exhibits. The museum is closed on Mondays.

Though each work at the Museum of Biblical Art explores themes or depicts scenes from the Bible, the museum’s mission is to provide invaluable insight into centuries’ worth of art history as guests of all backgrounds and denominations learn about art’s portrayal of Western culture. More than 11 galleries and permanent exhibits, including Mysteries, Signs and Wonders: The Art of Barbara Hines, fill the museum’s 30,000 square feet of space, beckoning visitors to interpret installations ranging from paintings and sculptures to rare books and lithograph, with notable artists including Andy Warhol, Marc Chagall, Michelangelo, and John Singer Sargent. In addition to The National Center for Jewish Art, an on-site conservation lab, pilgrimage attractions, and watercolors of archaeological holy sites, the MBA also festoons its walls with works by African-American and Hispanic artists that analyze the same biblical themes, albeit from a different cultural perspective.

Can homeschoolers go to college? How can I best prepare my child for college? How do we select a college? What should a transcript look like? What financial helps are available? What’s FAFSA and TAFSA? How can I find out about scholarships? What’s the difference between the PSAT, SAT, and ACT, and what is the CLT? Should my child take CLEP tests? What about dual credit and does it all transfer?

Get the answers to these and other important college-prep questions at the HEART of Texas College Night – a special evening designed especially for homeschool families with college-bound students.

Who should attend and why? Families with students entering high school, but particularly those who are in 10th, 11th, and 12th grades. It is best to start your search early in the high school years, and begin to narrow down your selections as you near graduation. Additionally, there are several important deadlines that occur between the junior and senior year in high school, and you will want to be prepared ahead of time so there are no surprises.
