  • It's a nice place, though small. I expected a bit more for the admission price, however, all art museums are wonderful to have. The building itself is beautiful!  more »

  • A small,but excellent museum. Wonderful collection of local artist past and present. In addition, they have one of the largest miniature collections in the country. Worth visiting for that alone.
  • Any time that you can explore history and get lost in the different periods of time I'm a huge fan of. This museum was filled with rich history and timeless art. If you're in Charleston it's a must stop in.
  • Beautiful art, I could easily spend hours here. A very relaxing layout, and a coffee shop downstairs!
  • Interesting museum, especially when visiting artists are there. We took an old woodcut block there and a visiting printmaker showed us how to print it.
  • Great display of local wood and stone carving master Mary May. She was engaged with children of Angel Oak School.
