I've been coming to the area of Myrtle Beach where this museum is located for years, but I had never noticed it before. I thought it was a super nice family residence, but it's actually a small art museum! When we visited, there were 4 exhibits open to the public, and they were very different from each other and everything... More

Only in Myrtle Beach would you be lucky enough to visit an art museum in a beach house! This is free and wonderful! They have constantly changing exhibits and wonderful programs. Perfect way to send an afternoon. They even have an enclosed area to relax and have tea. Don't miss this amazing place!

I have been going to this museum for many years now, and they never stop surprising me with the famous artwork they get in this museum. Amidst all the beachwear stores and hotels on the beach, this renovated beach house has local and international artwork. Well worth the visit while in town.

I learned so much about southern art. With my free admission, I enjoyed the Jonathan Green, "Rice" exhibition and "Remnants of Rice Culture" by David Shriver Soliday. The "Works in Denim" used cut up pieces of jeans and denim to represent the impact indigo had on the colonial period. I was very impressed with the exhibits!

Took my wife and granddaughter to see the rice art of Johnathon Green.and indigo denim art exhibit by Jim Arendt. They also had a Frank Loyd Wright exhibit. It looks like it was a house at one time that was turned into a museum. Though it is relatively small, they have two stories and several large rooms on each floor.... More

Tucked away away among the live oak trees lies a real gem. Me and mine visit regularly with each changing exhibit. We have enjoyed everything from Historic Maps to Photography by Ansel Adams, Prints by Audubon, to Australian Aboriginal art... Has handicap elevator, children activities, gift shoppe...Tea and Biscuits, Coffee and Cookies on the Veranda occasionally. Great Stuff !
