It opened to the public as an institution dedicated to the arts and education in 1965, and as an art museum in 1967. The house holds one of the country's finest collections of American paintings. It is located in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

  • I would definitely recommend stopping here on a day trip to Winston-Salem. (I actually found it more appealing than Old Salem which is interesting but kind of predictable.) This house is available to tour and truly has some -unique- rooms and flourishings. I won't give too much away, but definitely make sure you check out the basement! In addition, these grounds include gardens, a greenhouse, walking trails, and even a mini village with shops that were all once part of this estate. It really is worth the trip! The only reason I would give it 4/5 stars is that I would have preferred if they had someone to give a live tour vs. an audio tour. Other than that, great spot!
  • What a great small collection of American artwork. I've been here multiple times and always notice something new. The art is rotated regularly and the museum exhibits allow you to really take in the art rather than be overwhelmed by so many pieces in larger collections. The docents are informative and if you are taking in the house tour, I recommend the audio guide.
