This is a great little local Art Museum with lots of treats. The first time I went was to hear a speaker who was very friendly with Marc Chagall. Very interesting. I even made new friends there. The most recent visit was for a docent tour of their Ansel Adams Exhibit. I lived in Santa Fe and Albuquerque, New Mexico... More

Loved the 2 exhibits they had. Especially charmed by a local artist. And it was FREE! A fabulous way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Exhibit by Asian artist who specializes in wood carvings mixed with glass. Some of the most breath-taking, fragile and beautiful work I've ever seen seen. On display for a limited time. The museum is small and tucked away on sort of a side street. Very difficult to move around when crowded.

I have been here for a couple of exhibits, and although small in size, it is worth the trip. My most recent visit was for an Ansel Adams exhibit. It was extremely well-presented. I was there for almost three hours.

I come here every time I visit the area. This museum is a mini-treausre. They have new exhibits all the time - some SC artists, but this time a South Vietnamese wood turner, Binh Pho. Wow! It must be seen to be appreciated. Who would have guessed? World class art in a "beach community."

This small museum is well maintained and enthusiastically staffed by local staff and volunteers; part of the museum is closed for renovations so there was only one exhibit available when we were there. Fortunately, it was an Ansel Adams' exhibit and was well worth an hour of quiet reflection and admiration. The gift shop offered some unusual items we hadn't... More

We saw the Ansel Adams exhibit that was terrific. It's nicely situated on the beach and the Museum is free and a great local art stop!

Love this museum. Quaint, warm and love the lay-out. Old historical home that has amazing exhibits around every corner. Will miss the Ansel Adams Series. Don't miss the Dixie Dugan exhibit.

I was surprised to read on Trip Advisor that there is an art museum in MB. It's located at the far south end of Ocean Blvd. The Ansel Adams exhibit was excellent! So glad we went. The other exhibit was interesting, but small and the 3rd gallery was closed being set up for a new exhibit. We will plan to... More
