The museum had a nice mix of impressionism and local culture represented. The staff was friendly and offered insights without being intrusive. We really enjoyed our visit.

As the title says, the art that was displayed in the museum was more impressive than I thought it would be, albeit I am not an art critique. That is where the positives end. How can anyone expect to enjoy the art displayed in the museum when the staff is stalking you as if you are a criminal the entire... More

Great local museum in downtown Greenville. As other reviewers mention there is an impressive Wyeth collection but the rotating collections are also nice. Examples are of local Greenville and regional southern artists as well as a nice Edgefield district pottery collection. Museum is free but donate to support this great institution. Nice gift shop as well.

This is one of the best art museums in the Southeast. Large collection of Andrew Wyeth. Free, yes free, admission. Worth a trip to Greenville.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the museum. It was very educational. It flowed very well and the exhibits were very engaging.

As others have mentioned, this museum, though small, is just the right size to spend a few hours. The exhibits change from time to time and we really enjoyed all the local artists plus the Wyeth collection. A nice variety of different artistic styles. After exploring the museum, I recommend going to the beautiful library in the Heritage Green complex... More

Let me start by saying that I am not an art museum person. I like what I like and don't "get" what some "artists" call art. But this is a local art museum where it seems to have been thoughtfully laid out, has a very nice environment, great staff. And, apparently, great art. I enjoyed the hours spent here with... More

We have visited museums around the world, and while this museum is certainly not in the world-class category, we give it 5-stars because it achieves its goals and provides a great deal of pleasure. The museum is free, well-appointed, and varied in collection, mostly paintings with a bit of sculpture. (The Wyeth collection is a stunner.) GCMA features regional art,... More

The museum was very beautiful and carried one of the largest exhibits of Andrew Wyeth's work. Very family friendly and the price was right- free!
