The Columbia Museum of Art is located in the heart of downtown Columbia, South Carolina, just blocks from the State Capitol building.
In addition to rotating exhibitions, the Columbia Museum of Art has a fantastically diverse permanent collection of art. In fact, they have one of the largest and most impressive international collections in the southeast, including many Renaissance and Baroque pieces. They organize their collection by theme, so that visitors can explore thematically similar pieces from across many eras. We think this creates a richer experience for our guests, who enjoy seeing how an idea like “Vice and Virtue” is explored in different ways over the years.Visit Our Website Get Directions
