I try to get to every new exhibition at this museum. (It helps that I live within walking distance, because parking, although free, is very limited.) This is basically an old-style beach cottage moved from another location in Myrtle Beach, renovated and turned into a great asset to the community. No, it isn't the Louvre, but it is a wonderful...

View the works of local artists both adult and children. Exhibits from world renowned artist rotate through the gallery. Take a little break and have tea on the veranda and look out at the beautiful beach. Nice, relaxing and informative. A must see for visitors and locals.

The museum is located on the South end of the strip near Springmaid Pier. It is fascinating for both adults and children. The exhibits change frequently and the staff is wonderful. This is a free visit but your experience may leave you wanting to make a small donation at the end. Well worth your trip if you are looking for... More

I really enjoyed this week long event. Watching the monks create this beautiful Mandala was a once in a lifetime experience. This Tibetan Buddhist tradition involving the creation and destruction of mandalas made from colored sand. To sit and watch this spiritual creation was unbelievable. It's only going to be there for 2 more days...it's a must see! BTW, this... More

The museum is small and charming. I have visited many times and enjoyed various exhibits. The children's art lessons are also wonderful! Highly recommend visiting if you're in the area.

In need of a bit of a face-lift and to bring up to the 21st century proper lighting for a museum housing contemporary exhibits... am glad to see "culture" in the MB area to offset all the tourist-attractions and other mind-numbing alternative attractions/offerings around (putt-putt gold, etc). Enjoyed the current exhibit entitled "SWIM" and some of the exhibits on the... More

I just love this museum. The collection displays are wonderful. While small it has a big impact. Attend any of the wonderful programs offered. Most are free and extremely good. This year there was a full day of celebration for Chinese New Year. A real family event. This is a wonderful little art museum. A true must see of local... More

Scrambling to find things to do indoors in the frigid February weather we took Trip Advisors advice and visited this lovely little museum and were treated to a wonderful collection of young Cuban artists. "Voices of the Island" is a wonderful collection of Cuban artist Reynier Llanes and well worth the visit on its own merit. The museum houses several... More

The ladies at the front desk were very nice. It's in a beautiful spot for afternoon tea. They had some great "coloring pages" for my son to pretend he was Matisse!
