Fodor's Review

Housed in a beautiful Beaux-Arts building, this museum boasts a collection of 10,000 works, principally American with a local connection. Different objects from the museum's permanent collection are on view in "The Charleston Story," offering a nice overview of the region's history. The museum will be closed for major renovations until early 2016.

Delightful small museum

A small but charming art museum with a very good collection containing a few works by name artists (Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns, Benjamin West, Gilbert Stuart). But the works by lesser-knowns are of high quality, including several miniatures, prints, and drawings. A good bit of the work here has a local connection, either painted by a Charleston artist or depicting something/someone from the city. Well worth a visit.
