I really prefer small museums that I can enjoy in 1-2 hours. This place met that criteria. I especially enjoyed the collections of Andrew Wyeth and James Wyeth. Special exhibitions change over time so it's worth a visit at another time.More

This is a wonderful facility and the exhibits are first rate. I was very impressed by the Sampling the Old Masters collection, Rolston-Talking Heads and Impressionism and the South. The Wyeth Exhibits are always great!

This was a good place to get out of the heat and get a bit of culture! Free admission, and a large selection of Andrew Wyeth paintings. We were reprimanded several times for getting too close to the paintings so just beware.....stand back!

Small but worth the visit. The building itself is very interesting. My favorite part was the Andrew Wyeth exhibit. The temporary exhibit of Masters from BJU was very nice, too. Love the fact that there was no charge!
