  • First, this Art Museum is free of charge to enter and view the art. It has a massive amount of fine art of various shapes and sizes. There is a gift shop and a cafe located here as well. There are multiple floors that you can traverse and explore. Some areas do not allow photography of the art while other areas do. I recommend coming here. It truly is a fantastic museum.
  • Okay museum for a university. The collection is fairly small and has a narrow scope mostly aimed at Georgia subjects. The museum can be done in about an hour. I did not care for the fact that one's bags must be checked in a locker. I also really did not care for the fact that I felt like I was being followed by the numerous security guards at the museum. For a smaller museum it seems to have an abnormally large amount of security and they really do follow you like a hawk. As an avid museum and art lover it made me feel uncomfortable and unwelcome.
  • I live in athens and decided to take my parents to the art decision. The art wasn't bad, nothing to exciting, a large portion of the art was paper. The people rude the experience wasn't very great. The employees follow you like a hawk, in one portion they lady kept sighing like we were bothering her. There is cameras on every corner so I couldn't understand why they had people following you around from room to room. Majority of the signs were very small print and I was yelled at for being to close to a painting, so I could read a sign about it, that was made in 2011.
  • Very cool museum. We rented it for a party and our guests absolutely loved it. Why just rent a room to have a party when you can rent a museum? We love to see the new exhibits here too. Real undiscovered gem in Athens GA.
  • They host neat family friendly events on the weekends. Cool place to visit.
