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

Plenty of crazy people wandering around but we couldn't figure out what the attraction was. If you're into wasting time - I guess this is as good as any for that.

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.
