Enjoyed our two hours at this museum dedicated to American artists, many from the local area of Indiana. We eavesdropped on a docent tour of 5th graders and wished we had had a docent tour. The art is well displayed, not crowded, well lit and...More

I had a few hours to spend downtown, and chose to go to the Swope. It was well run, (free!-donation requested) and had a wide variety in their collection. I wish I would have had more time to spend here, and will definitely come back!...More

We stumbled upon this museum while walking around downtown. There were some very interesting pieces, particularly from the local artists. The best, however, was a visiting show from another local animation artist. His material was like nothing I'd ever seen.

The Swope is a small jewel of a museum in Terre Haute. It has an excellent collection of American Art. There are a couple of galleries that have rotating shows and a venue for educational activities. Definitely worth a visit if you're anywhere nearby.

This museum, although not huge, has a very respectable collection of American Art. We were surprised and delighted to find works, very good works, by Grant Wood, Robert Motherwell, Edward Hopper, Reginald Marsh, and a particularly stunning portrait by George Luks. I was not familiar...More
