Lovely little museum with some wonderful works by American Impressionists, especially Childe Hassam. A beautiful location on the Lieutenant River with spectacular gardens. At Cafe Flo, lunch on the veranda with great views and delicious food. Thoroughly enjoyed my visit.

The history and art alone make the journey to this Museum a bucket list must. The well thought out gallery and explanation of style means even a novice art lover can extend the beauty of the art beyond the canvas.

Idyllic setting, beautiful artwork, and loads of family-friendly activities. Highly recommend plein air painting on Discovery Sundays!

I love the annual events the Florence Griswold Museum holds. They have an excellent fairy house exhibit with Hands-On activities for the kids like scavenger hunting. They have so many performances and fun things for the family to enjoy together. I especially love shopping in their gift shop for the holidays.
