Nice museum in a fantastic old mansion with several new additions. Exhibits on art, local history, good feature exhibits.

Thousands of paintings dedicated to art and artists. The museum also houses the Center for the Study of Southern Art, a reference and research library that includes archives pertaining to artists working in the South. I thoroughly enjoyed the visit.

Our first visit, but well worth it. It's a friendly place - not too big, but with five or six distinct gallery / exhibit areas. We particularly enjoyed the NJ Diner exhibit, the Guinness collection of musical pieces and Automata and to our surprise, the...More

Check website for the prices for admission. It looks like a child over 3 years is a $7.00 charge. I advise to go on the Thursday where you just make a donation of your choice. It may be the 3rd Thursday of the month... More
