This charming small museum had 3 local artist on display when we visited. Very interesting and accomplished artists. We met 2 right there that day! The upper floor was closed for an upcoming exhibit. The staff was so friendly. Will definitely return again and again.

Enjoyed our visit! There is a balance of permanent displays and special artists on short term display. The ladies who were working when we were there were lovely and very helpful.

Went on a day it rained but would recommend a visit anytime. We found it to be an unexpected pleasure. Fine exhibits and able to sit on a porch drink tea and eat cookies and enjoy a great view
