Went with my son to see the latest exhibit. He had never been here. We both like this hidden gem in Myrtle Beach. And it is free. The art work is changed periodically. Nice people.

The Elizabeth Bradley collection is particularly beautiful and the artist's journal entries posted beside many of her pieces are equally exquisite. Other art was nice but her collection alone would have made it a very worthwhile visit. You can have a cup of tea and...More

We visited here on a rainy January day and enjoyed a delightful break from the weather and the commercialism in Myrtle. The museum's exhibit about local history is great - worth a trip. The setting is serene - great views over the dunes. A new...More

The only true Art Museum in town. Shows change regularly and are always fun. Some of the local art groups do their shows there too and so getting juried in is a big deal.

This small, local museum displays art of the American southeast. The museum shows photography, paintings, maps, pottery, quilts, and other objects, from their own collection as well as from traveling exhibitions. There is a large gallery downstairs, large enough to sometimes show two exhibitions, and...More
