  • I think we wanted this museum to be something other than what it was. While it did display a significant portion of southern art, the genres were vast and often had one or two pieces before moving on....  more

  • I think this museum is really nicely organized and I liked the flow. The exhibits at the time (Aug 2022) want them most exciting to be honest. It's small, you can probably finish washing the whole thing in about an hour. I don't think it's worth the price of the ticket but I'm glad I went. I would visit again if I saw something interesting being shown.
  • Five floors encompassing a broad range of media -- photography, drawing, paint, glass, mixed -- periods from French colonial to yesterday, and styles from formal landscape and portrait to what appear to be children's crayon scratching. The common thread, besides their artistic merit, is a connection with our Southern states. I found the collection engaging and often surprising. Could definitely spend more time here.
