The Swope gallery was doing a bit of renovation but still worth the time to visit. The range of artists was surprisingly broad and combined notable local artists as well as some excellent world class pieces.

Was in town with time to kill; they've got some great pieces. I can imagine if you're into art this must be even better. Good for the price too (free!)

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.

Few small American art museums are as good as this one. It is small, but it contains fine examples of American art including Edward Hopper and Thomas Hart Benton. Located in downtown Terre Haute, it is a pleasant hour and a half visit, uncrowded, quiet...More
