  • I saw only a small show, but it was interesting. I saw a wonderful painting by a Chocktaw artist whose work I was not aware of--and in the shop I bought a gorgeous long silk ikat vest!  more »
  • very limited exhibits. Even though this museum is small it could have a greater diversity of GOOD art!  more »
  • 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.  more »

  • 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
  • Totally disappointed in the selection chosen to keep people's interest. I hope the original location is better once construction is complete.
  • 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.
  • I feel the museum has a interesting and varied permanent collection and does a great job bringing interesting temporary exhibits. I like that the collection is only American artists and find it interesting and educational to be exposed to artists within the United States, past and present. I have always found the staff to be friendly and helpful. I went to the most recent exhibit Rebel's with a Cause, American Women artists...what a wonderful collection of work !

Where to stay in Asheville

To take advantage of the best Asheville has to offer without breaking the bank, stay at one of the city's small motels, many of which offer free breakfast buffets and plenty of secure parking. Asheville's historical district contains most of the city's bed and breakfasts, allowing you to stay within a short walk of downtown shopping, dining, and entertainment. The area also boasts numerous budget-friendly hostels, offering inexpensive private rooms for backpackers. For something completely different, rent an eco-friendly cabin in a wooded area just a short drive from the city.
