  • This is a beautiful place to take your children to see beautiful artwork. Even a beautiful place to take your significant other. This was a field trip event to this Museum. It was a wonderful experience and Miss Elise had great patience and she was an awesome tour guide. She kept the attention of the children and interacted with them. Even the staff was wonderful very helpful, all the way to the security officer very kind-hearted people.
  • One of the highlights of our trip. Such a gorgeous space and loved the way it was designed to cut down on the noise of the lobby. We enjoyed the artists in the studios working that were beyond friendly and personable about their work. Great exhibits and pieces, plenty of colonial and South Carolinian pieces. Would highly recommend.
