This small gallery was a nice diversion from most of the things to do in Myrtle Beach. The photographs of Ansell Adams were being displayed when we visited - a treat at any time. The gallery has a lovely gift shop, with many well chosen items. There is no admission fee to go to the gallery, donations are appreciated.

I've been to the last 3 exhibits. They are presented nicely, organized and with care. Unfortunately, it's small, not very locally focused and lacks quality gift shop items. Good thing it's Free/Donation admission.

Great juried art and photo show followed by an Ansel Adams retrospective made me want to come back every few weeks to see what was new.

Loved the exhibit. All the staff were really friendly and helpful. They had two other exhibits I didn't have time for. With only 45 minutes before it closed, I was very glad it was free and they had a donations box. A museum worth donating to.

On the Ocean, near the pier. Nice area to walk around. Museum is so homey and quaint, Everyone so nice. Expected more to see, but a nice change of pace to relax.

There is always a great selection of Gullah artwork at this Art Museum. Jonathan Green has many pieces of his work on record there and artists of South Carolina have ongoing shows throughout the year. There is a lovely 'little tea room' available for tea or coffee with a small collection of cookies, etc. when one needs to sit down... More

What a terrific museum. The minute you walk in the door you know you are somewhere special- you are greeted and the museum history and layout is explained. It's a great experience. The exhibits provide a lot of details in writing and via video display. While we were walking through, a group of children were also learning about Ansel Adams.... More
