  • We had a great time. The exhibits are small, but my son enjoyed the Jan Brett play area! The old photos of downtown were neat to see.  more »
  • I grew up in the Greenville vacinity, & was really looking forward to learning more about the mill history. There were some displays, but my 12 year old granddaughter was bored rather quickly.  more »

  • Very dissapointed. Especially for the costs. Limited exhibits, maybe with the lack of history for the city my expectations were too high having visited some of the countries most excellent museums. And though impressive, a collection of Katharine Hepburn's costumes was impressive, did not fit the mood or tone of remainder of place.
  • My daughter & I had a very enjoyable time here. Our visit was for her college project . We especially found the Katherine Hepburn clothing display very fascinating, as I am a old movies buff.
  • Small intimate museum, but had high quality displays. When I went, there were Ansel Adams and Dr Seuss exhibits that showcased unique, not often seen works, esp of Adams, whom I am a big fan. All of the local history displays were nicely done, but some of the information is debatable if you grew up here. Overall a cool place to go if there is an exhibit that piques your interest.
  • Nice presentation of info. Fun space design. Kid-friendly area. Nice rotation of visiting exhibits mixed with local history.
  • Beautiful tribute to the area history. Lovely, kind staff always ready to answer questions. Amazing quality of traveling exhibits changing regularly, many opportunities every year to learn beyond the core exhibits
