Great place on a rainy day. Nice set of Wyeth studies and paintings...and free! Parking is behind the museum and there is also a children's museum next door.

Remarkably, there is no charge to enjoy this museum. There are rotating exhibits by well-known artists as well as permanent exhibits by South Carolina artists. Well worth the hour or two (depending on your personal pace) it takes to explore it. Be sure to check out the gift shop, too!

Without a doubt, our visit to the Greenville County Museum of Art was the most uncomfortable, unwelcoming museum visit of my life. We were literally monitored the entire visit to the point that the staff actually watched us walk up and down the steps and hovered as we viewed the art. We got a little to close at one point,...

We are great fans of Wyeth so this museum was high on our list to visit during a recent road trip to the area. It is a very small museum with an incredible collection of Wyeth watercolors on display. According to the docent who was very knowledgeable, they have many paintings that are currently in storage. Small town - but... More

Greenville County Museum of Art is a worth your attention. First, the museum has many surprising gems of American art, with an extensive collection Andrew Wyeth paintings. Next, it is located on Heritage Green where the library, Children's Museum, Upcountry Museum, Bob Jones Museum and Gallery, and Little theater are located. Last, it is the Art Museum is FREE.

The Greenville County Museum of Art is the finest art museum. It is a pretty museum, with beautiful artwork, often teaching southern history, has wonderful support, and the best Director and staff anywhere.

We were rather disappointed with our visit to the Greenville County Museum of Art. The Museum was undergoing a renovation which reduced substantially the collection displayed to the Wyeth collection and small collection of three South Carolina artists. The Wyeth collection is quite good with two portraits that were particularly striking. The Carolina artists' collection was rather limited and we... More
