We were fortunate to see the Andrew Wyeth exhibit. It was very good. This is a nice local museum and worth a visit.

Andrew Wyeth put this museum on the map. Unfortunately, most of that collection was sold to a japanese company. Nevertheless, there are some nice Wyeth pieces remaining, and a lot of other are. There are frequent special showings. The museum also hosts art classes for children and adults.

This museum has approximately 18 Andrew Wyeth paintings. One of our favorite artists. Also has a nice gift shop to browse.

This is one art museum you won't want to miss! The Andrew Wyeth Collection is not only extensive but absolutely captivating. I appreciated the exhibit which honored veterans seriously injured overseas - that was very moving. Don't forget to go to the First Floor Gallery to see the most amazing watercolors! The collective artist talent in that room is overwhelming!... More

Not a bad seat in the house. Great local talent in a variety of productions. Parking is available in a garage across the street.

We stopped in on a hot day in August and found a true gem in the Upstate area. The people there were friendly and knowledgeable. We only toured one of the three levels of art, but will be returning again soon. They also have what they call "Two O'Clock Sunday" where every Sunday at 2:00pm they have an event. And... More

I learned about this small museum having a collection of Andrew Wyeth paintings 20 years ago. Things got in the way of visiting there until now. Not only does it have his paintings, it is the largest collection in the world! I was in heaven. Also enjoy the Edgefield pottery collection as well as many other exhibits of mostly southern... More

The museum was a great size for an hour's worth of time to walk through. It was not overwhelming but still provided some wonderful artwork to look at.

Fairly small for an art museum but the exhibits were wonderful. Kids enjoyed examining the different styles of paintings and learning about expressionism in various forms. Staff were a bit stodgy but most are in museums.
