This center contains the Spartanburg History Museum, the Art Museum, the Science Center and the Spartanburg Little Theater. On most Sundays, there's a musician and the history and art museums are free to view. What's not to love? A great location to experience so much of Spartanburg.

My husband and I have been member of the little theater for 4 years now and we love it! Great shows with big performances. The theater is small but comfortable and the actors always bring their A games!

The quality of the offerings at the Chapman Cultural Center can't be overrated. A wide array of exhibitions, performances, historical offerings and adult and children's classes. So lucky to have this place in Spartanburg.

A great place to visit after church just to walk around the park-like area. Then inside the buildings if nothing on the stage, just wander around the interesting art work on display. On a nice sunny day, bring a bag lunch and enjoy the seasonery!!
