Guests of all ages enjoy exploring our exhibits and learning at our museum. Plan your trip today.

McKissick Museum will be closed through the end of spring semester, as the university monitors the impact of #COVID19 in South Carolina. This includes the cancellation of all scheduled events and tours. These events include March & April's Quilt Documentation Days and the  Nature of Spring with Rudy Mancke (3/17). Thank you for your patience during this time.
