Gibbes Museum of Art is located in the historic district of Charleston, South Carolina. James Shoolbred Gibbes generously donated $100,000 dollars after his death to the erection of a museum for the exhibition of paintings. Displayed here is the collection of over 10,000 works of fine art from American artists with a connection to Charleston of the South.

The museum is open daily except for Mondays and national holidays. The museum includes events, tours, a store and exhibits.

Current exhibits include “A Soldier's View of Civil War Charleston”, “Stephen Marc”, “Anna Heyward Taylor” and “The Charleston Story”. The Gibson Museum of Art is a good place for school trips or families and includes tours and activities for children.
