The building is elegant and the location on the river walk is perfect. The staff members were welcoming and friendly, especially the ladies in the remarkable gift shop - and the collection of art was both impressive and memorable. Not to be missed!

A very nice place to view art about and by the southern artist. There are many types of art, styles of art and artists. Art is grouped in small areas with a common title for the grouping. Extremely low price to get in as well.

Most of the art is conventional. I recognized some artists from my time in Knoxville. The art was contemporary. It is not a large museum but just a nice place to visit.

First museum dedicated to southern art; located in office building, there were no sculptures outside to promote the museum; there was small sign with name, but nothing to indicate a quality art museum. Hidden treasure/

Regina is correct. I went to the Museum on a Sunday, and so it was free. I don't know what the regular rate is.
