Beautiful building with an art gallery that extends over the past 200 years. While relatively small, it provides a good insight into southern art. Two areas are reserved for rotating art. Go on a Sunday when it is free!

I love to stroll around this museum on Sundays with my guy. It's a nice place to go where it's quiet. Much of the art is outstanding! Nice little gift shop, too.

This is one of those places that I always makes me feel better. I've been going here since I was a little girl. Its paintings still have a mesmerizing impact.

We thoroughly enjoyed this museum. We just happened on it when visiting the Riverwalk. Lovely paintings that told many stories in the history of the south and our country (USA). It was really worth the visit and a good way to spend a couple hours...More

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.
