Great museum and fun place to visit and learn about history. If you like the history of bootlegging or moonshine, this a good place to find what you are interested in.

One of the better municipal art museums I've experienced, showcasing (on my most recent visit) the watercolors of Andrew Wyeth and the work of other renowned American masters of the 20th century, as well as less well known but distinguished regional artists. The museum is open, airy and with a sound sense of the relationship between how art is hung... More

We were excited by the website description of this museum but we didn't think it lived up to the hype. However, there were some nice Wyeths, including a few we weren't familiar with. Happily, there is free admission. It's hard to find the museum from downtown unless you have GPS since there didn't seem to be any signage pointing the... More

We went to Greenville mostly to visit this museum. They have a large collection of Andrew Wyeth and Jasper Johns. Very impressive American art collection. Pay attention to their hours. They are NOT open on Monday or Tuesday. The museum itself is very attractive. Well worth a visit. It is free!

Amazingly free entry. Beautifully designed building. Andrew Wyeth, Jasper Johns & Amer Kobaslija all carefully presented. This museum is fortunate to have a good deal of local support; the result is very impressive.

This is a small but spectacular museum, featuring some of Wyeth's nicest work. It is often filled with live music, echoing through the galleries. Parking is easy out back. Their travelling exhibits (such as Mary White) are superb. The gift shop is nice too.

Traveling with 7 yr. olds we visited the bottom floor only as suggested by the receptionist. AWESOME best describes the local exhibit on view. Local artist Doug Mcafee's work was perfect for talking, thinking and relating to art, esp. for these young guys. Catch him if you can!
