Peaceful, free and educational! My daughter and I enjoyed the museum very much! We visited late in the day on a Saturday so we had to move through at a faster pace than we would have normally to make it through before closing. We will definitely go back soon! The Wyeth exhibit was amazing and the amount of art and levels to the museum was amazing. The staff was so nice and welcoming and enjoyed sharing with us!

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.

A gem of a museum in downtown Greenville! The admission is free and the parking charge is minimal (both visits, fee was under $3). It is part of the Heritage Green complex which also houses The Children's Museum of the Upstate, Upcountry History Museum, the Hughes Main Library and Greenville Little Theater.

The collections were interesting and included several of the Wyeths, Jasper Johns, a selection of the art from the Bob Jones Museum Old Master painting collection and the spectacular carving work of Grainger McKoy.

The lighting should probably be re-evaluated as it causes an unfortunate glare on many of the works, but this is a not-to-be-missed stop in Greenville.

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!

you will love this museum, it tells the history of art by using art painted in South, or by Southerners or about the South. Even a Georgia O'Keefe painted when she was in the south. Truly wonderful beautiful paintings. Many jasper johns, Andrew wyeths, jonathan greens
