The museum features local artists along with well-known artists. Of course the main attraction is the works of Walter Anderson. The staff is well-versed in the exhibits. It's one of the best art museums in the south for sure.

Great museum dedicated to the Anderson family of artists with most famous being Walter Anderson. If you're traveling through the area, the museum is a must see for anyone that appreciates artistic representation of the local Gulf Coast
