  • Definitely a place to go to for some serenity in otherwise bustling​ Athens. The art is beautiful and the building, itself, is an eclectic mix of techniques, materials, texture, colors and landscaping pounded into a single harmonic structural masterpiece that can hold it's own. Incredible amount of thought seems to have gone into most minute detail; Very well executed.
  • Fun for a quick visit! Small but representative selection of art
  • Free entry - donation is appreciated. 3 galleries. 1 is temporary. And the contemporary art is dope. This gallery also houses works from realllllllly well known artists. There's something for everyone.
  • First Time caught me for Hours on ONE EXHIBIT!
  • Lovely small museum with a pretty good variety of art encompassing different media. Free, by donation makes it a great value. Glad we made the stop
