I was surprised at how large this collection was. It's not the MET and you're not going to find many of the great masters here. A lot of is is run of the mill medieval renaissance stuff, but nonetheless, there is some great history here and to find a collection like this in the middle of Greenville is pretty cool.... More

The gallery is absolutely a special place to see some incredible art .... amazing both artistically and historically. Totally unique for anywhere in the country. Works by amazing artists. Take time to read up on the artists and the different art periods in history. It is incredibly interesting. A quiet and peaceful way to spend some leisure time. Audio tour... More

Upscale but low budge art gallery, they do not recommend or enjoy children and they want or give them impression to be a HUGE Upscale gallery but its not, I had a free pass but would not recommend paying unless you just enjoy that sort of thing but I would recommend taking that money and getting a dinner somewhere instead.

This small but very interesting museum has art that would make many large museums quite envious. Many large works by established masters grace the walls. The place is attractive and nicely laid out. The staff is friendly and not overbearing, but helpful when you want information. There are many types of work, including wood and architectural pieces as well. Inexpensive... More

This museum has an amazing amount of religious art, especially for a city the size of Greenville. Would highly recommend seeing this if in the area.

Many pieces by famous masters. Nearly all with religious relevance. Considerate and aimiable staff. If you are not into religious art, don't bother.
