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.

Our group performed at the museum as it does very year at that time. The performances are free and occur of Sundays at 2 PM during the winter months. The art displayed is also top notch. I believe that the admittance is free most of the time

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.

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
