The Columbia Museum of Art

“South Carolina 's premier international art museum houses an extraordinary collection of European and American fine and decorative art that spans centuries. In recent years, the Museum's collection of Asian art and Antiquities has grown through generous gifts to the collection. Founded in 1950, the museum opened its new building on Main Street in 1998 by transforming an urban department store into a sleek and airy, light-filled space with 25 galleries.”

The Museum is on the corner of Main and Hampton Streets. Directions and information about parking can be found on the website.
