This was a small museum and very cute. We were there for only about 20 minutes. Not very easy to find but worth it for the old house and unique art work.

beautiful garden int the back and the building is perfect for TAKING A TOUR! IT COSTES A COUPLE BUCKS BUT THE MONEY GOES TO PRESERVE THIS AWESOME HISTORIC TREASURE! If you like history better hurry, this year was a bad one for fund raising

If you are a Demuth fan the building and somewhat limited collection are satisfying, but don't expect an extensive collection or exhibits by other artists. Rather small venue.

The collection is very small. Not sure if there are more works in storage. The examples shoe different styles of Demuth's work. A longer description of Demuth's work in context & the evolution of his work would help. Nevertheless, he is an important local celebrity.

Just a very few Demuth paintings, mostly prints, other artists work and things to buy. Not worth the time or the $20. Demuth paintings are exceptional watercolors so so this Museum was a real disappointment

This small museum is worth a visit. It won't take long, and it's worth your time. A little bit of history about this artist that I never knew.

We thought there'd be more of his paintings on display, but seeing the house where he lived (and his history) was nice.
