We decided to check out this museum based on other Trip Advisor reviews. We didn't think it was a 5, but we enjoyed the short visit and the trip through Randolph College as well.

This is on the campus of Randolph College, tucked away behind the athletic fields. They have a small but well curated collection of American art, including pieces from Whistler and Hopper. Don't miss it!

What a treat to be at a museum without the crowds! You can take your time to absorb the beauty in these paintings, many of which would be coveted by The Phillips Collection in Washington DC and even the National Gallery. Staff was very knowledgeable and shared info about many of the paintings. And it's all free...
