AOL Travel Editor’s Review

This awe-inspiring Beaux Arts palace houses one of the South's finest art collections. Highlights include works from the early 20th century "Charleston Renaissance," when famed American artists like Childe Hassam came to paint its cobblestone streets and Spanish moss-dripping oak trees. The paintings, sculptures and decorative objects of the Colonial collection are also impressive, many of them hailing directly from the insides of Charleston mansions. Changing exhibits range from Picasso to 20th century wood block posters (check the website for details on what's up and when). The museum also co-sponsors a neat walking tour, which takes visitors through the city streets to see the places where some of Charleston's most famous artists were inspired.
