The museum is known for it's Andrew Wyeth collection, and we were not disappointed there. In addition to a large gallery full of Wyeth's, there were several others with diverse and interesting works on display. We loved the space itself and look forward to future visits.

They have an amazing amount of Andrew Wyeth. They also have some paintings that we wondered why they were in a museum. Since it's free, it's definitely worth the 1/2 - 3/4 hours to see it.

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 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

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
