Commonly referred to as the Art Museum of Myrtle Beach, the Franklin G. Burroughs - Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum defines one of those serendipitous moments. Owing to how little there is to see in terms of history at Myrtle Beach, you won’t expect a museum to host the variety of art that it does. Concealed in a 1920’s beach cottage on the Southern Boulevard, the museum’s exhibits boast of the local talent that is overflowing on the Grand Stand. Apart from the permanent displays, there are many works of art, which are showcased here, as a part of a national tour.

Franklin G. Burroughs - Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum Reviews & Ratings
Went while the galleries on ocean pollution and Emily Weston were on display. Absolutely phenomenal setup. It's a smaller place, too, so we had a very warm and personable reception. We just stayed for the galleries, but I would also recommend checking their website as they offer a lot more as well! And, if you're on a budget, don't worry - it's free to walk on in and take a look. Magnificent place full of breathtaking art. I can't believe it wasn't swarming when we got there.
Small local museum that features interesting local artist. Changes exhibits so it's always interesting. The architecture alone of the building is beautiful and worth the visit. Used to be a summer residence and they've repurposed it wonderfully. They have affordable classes and lectures to enjoy. Also a small gift shop to browse. Last time we were there it was by 'donation'. Put this on your rainy day list.
Second summer of taking kids from a daycare here for a field trip. Our kids enjoy it so much and love coming here! Staff are excellent at what they do and are patient with kids!!! 2019 Summer of "What Do You Sea" kids hot to tour and then use recycled plastic items to make their own art.
Went for the ocean plastics installation. Definitely some serious misinformation being spread through the gallery. No scientific sources or evidence based claims to be seen. We need to be concerned with fishing, not plastic straws in the ocean. "A survey by scientists with Ocean Cleanup, an organization working to develop technologies to reduce ocean plastic, found that at least 46 percent of the plastic in the “Great Pacific garbage patch,” a floating gyre the size of France made up of plastic, comes from fishing nets. It’s worth noting that miscellaneous discarded fishing gear makes up the majority of the rest. World Animal Protection reports that 640,000 tons of gear are lost and pollute oceans each year. But this abandoned fishing gear goes well beyond pollution. “Ghost nets,” for example, are a danger to marine habitats and sea life. In 2016 there were 71 reported cases of whales caught in abandoned fishing gear off the U.S. Pacific coast." While ditching plastic straws may make you feel good inside, the BEST thing we can do to help marine life and the planet is to leave fish off our plates and switch to a compassionate vegan diet. Overall, the staff was very knowledgeable and friendly.
Great experience. Exhibits change every 3 months. No cost, donation encouraged. Well adapted historic house with knowledgeable friendly employees, easy access, shaded parking, fascinating exhibits, things to engage some kids, and small interesting gift shop. A good quiet cool intellectually stimulating 2 hours. I would visit every summer.
