One of the best things is the price...and the ever changing exhibits. Some may be a little to much for small children but it is a great place to take visitors to Hickory.

I attended a reception and exhibit of the work of Elizabeth Catlett that was hosted through a partnership between the museum and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority. What a wonderful event, and I don't just say that because I am a member of the organization. Lise Swensson, the director of the museum, has such an engaging enthusiasm for the arts that... More

The Folk Art exhibit at this museum is awesome; along with the varying seasonal exhibits that change frequently. It's a beautiful building (restoration of an historic building) and the exhibits are really interesting.

The museum is very nice, if not just a little small. They do a good job of scheduling new shows on a regular visit, and the space itself is very well designed. Many of their exhibits are regional is nature, featuring NC artist.
