  • We are art junkies and Wyeth fans to boot, having visited their permanent collections in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania and the Farnsworth in Maine. So, it was a no-brainer to detour a few minutes off our ...  more »
  • We took my Father-in-law who loves art. This is a small museum, but it was nice to look at. A good thing to do on a rainy day.  more »
  • We spent about two hours going through the museum. It is a lovely building and we enjoyed all the permanent and visiting displays.  more »

  • Beautiful exhibits but beware of the over baring staff who are also not educated on the art the watch so carefully over... I stood close to a wall and door way to take a photo of my daughter across the way and was told I was too close when I was not even near an exhibit. The lady loudly would say "Ma'am you are too close" she followed us around it was very uncomfortable. Then when we went upstairs a man started following us telling us "these cameras talk." Even if you are abiding by their three feet rule if you don't want to be harassed maybe stand five feet away from EVERYTHING!
  • Nicely laid out - easy to follow the pattern of the art. Clean. Staff are polite and helpful. Restrooms were clean. Good mix of eclectic, abstract, classic, oil, sculpture, darker works etc - everyone will find something. They did have a LOT of more abstract work which I’m not fond of but if that’s your thing, you’ll be quite happy. :) Admission is free. Paid parking.
  • It was nice going back but the experience was disappointing in that we had a lot of rules about how close we could stand to the paintings and I had to put my purse in a cart. It was really ridiculous. Don't think I'll go back any time soon. I've visited bigger museum without all the hassle with more valuable paintings.
  • A great place for locals and tourists. Excellent exhibits & permanent collections. We are very fortunate to be a small city with this impressive of a museum...
  • The GCMA is a real godsend for the entire Upstate, particularly its Sundays at 2 program. Where else can you learn about art in a wide variety of ways (including hands on) or enjoy some fine music that complements the fantastic visual art space? Thanks Duke Energy!
