Great for rainy days for tourists on the Grand Strand or regular trips by locals looking for a dose of regional culture and art, this is a two-story museum in a charming sprawling home-like building that has a few educational displays or art exhibits going on at a time and special events practically monthly--like a Chinese New Year / Cultural Festival which is great for children. They also have small educational center where you can learn about local history including viewing video on history of Myrtle Beach. General admission is free, a donation suggested. The Springmaid resort and pier is across the street and has beach view grill adjacent to the pier which is okay for light lunch before or after. The museum has a gift shop with nice items and prints, including some by my favorite southern artist Jonathan Green, who has exhibited there as well.
