I had to drag my husband there. I am an artist, so I would stop at every museum along the way, but this one was special because of the building itself. It really is beautiful.

This is a small but very interesting museum. The art displayed starts from the colonial eras all the way to the modern era. It was quiet and enjoyable and includes a gift shop with related products.

I was very pleased with the high quality selection of 19th century southern art pieces! For only $5 it really made my afternoon. I wouldn't recommend for youngsters but certainly for adults both young and old!
