We popped in on a rainy morning on a gallery hopping day in Charleston. The first thing we saw was the sculpture of the veiled woman and Holy Mackerel is she fantastic! From their collection of 18th and 19th century paintings and sculptures, mini portraits, Modern and Contemporary Art, to their special exhibits and installations, there is sure to be something that will keep you engaged.

So glad you included us on your art walk downtown! Thanks for the 5-star review - there is so much to see. And we're just transitioning the permanent collection galleries this week and next so please come back to check out what's new on view.

We enjoyed the variety of exhibits. The museum is small, but and excellent escape from the heat of summer and very enjoyable. Contains pre-revolution works through modern art. If you enjoy art galleries, this one has something for everyone. Their app enhances the self guided tour and is worth the time to download and listen in on.

I really like the Gibbes Museum Of Art on Meeting Street in Charleston. I have been coming here since I was a little and this museum always seems to inspire imagination and inspiration to create. I like that there are really good exhibits, programs, and events held here that makes it seem like a different experience each time, but still familiar and something that you can remember and return and enjoy again. I like all of the pieces that show the history of Charleston and South Carolina and all of the different stories that they tell of all of the different centuries. This museum is very consistent in the quality it delivers. I look forward to being able to come back here many times in the future.

This was a fantastic find. The staff was incredibly warm and informative. The installations provide a wide variety for all visitors to enjoy. The exhibits change out frequently, so it is now on our must-do each visit to Charleston!
