  • 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.
  • Very interesting displays. However this is not a great place to take younger children. We send on a field trip with 3rd grade. That is the youngest I would take. You are not supposed to touch anything.
  • A bit overpriced for what it is but the Curious George exhibit was cool. The kids had a great time.
  • A great place to go and learn about local history. The staff was friendly and helpful.
  • Very nice museum. We spent an hour and enjoyed seeing ago of it. Lots of talking people and videos.The price was cheap.

Where to stay in Greenville

Greenville's main street is home to a few historical hotels with elegant lobbies and rooms that recall the opulence of the early 20th century. Chain hotels with both standard rooms and suites are scattered throughout the city and near the airport. To be close to nature without sacrificing the city, consider a lodge or cabin in one of the nearby national parks.
