  • I will say they were closing soon for renovation so with the changes it might make a better excursion. I also think they might have put away some of their permanent collection. 
  • Was disappointed by the limited number of exhibits and size of the museum. For a town that is chock full of wonderful art it was a let down. 
  • Exhibits were being replaced so not everything was available. Had some unusual exhibits. Inexpensive.

  • They had some really neat exhibits and separate rooms, but as a whole, it was a bit lacking. I expected a lot more, especially from a city as art-centric as Asheville. Still cool to walk through, but not as much to see as I desired.
  • Honestly I recommend to save your 8 dollars and go walk around downtown. The shops and boutiques have more art then this place. Really disappointed that my hometown, that's known to be artistic. Has such a weak museum where the only exhibit worth looking at is the high school, elementary school section. You spend more time wandering around trying to find an actual exhibit. Then you do looking at the 5 or 8 pieces of art. VHD
  • Loved working here interesting events and exhibits.
  • Laugh your Asheville off! Another awesome show!
  • We booked the loft space for a business meeting during the week. The space itself is lovely. The room is industrial style with large windows overlooking downtown, and an abundance of natural light. The space was also well equipped with tables and chairs and a TV to connect to for presentations. Unfortunately due to the style of the room, there was quite a bit of noise from construction on the floor below throughout our meeting. However, shortly after we left from the meeting, the center called and offered to refund the rental fee for the day due to the unexpected noise and inconvenience. Because of their exceptional customer service, I would not hesitate to book another meeting...I just might check to be sure no construction would take place the same day.
