First visit to Greenville and my friend took me to this museum. Enjoyed the permanent exhibits, but the other exhibits of Ansel Adams and Dr. Seuss were phenomenal! And all for a $6 adult admission? Can't beat that!

Would have been more interesting had we been from SC. We didn't know any of the people or history. It was a good value.
