As a New Yorker, this place was a true find. It boasts of local, national and international artists. The new pottery classes are the best. This museum is child friendly and has a variety of classes geared for children of all ages.

We’ve been coming to Myrtle Beach for years and never knew this place existed. Nice to experience some art and culture in the area. The exhibits rotate every few months, so we will be back to check them out in the future!
