  • I have two gripes with this museum. 1. They need more benches so you can sit and stare at the paintings. 2. The map gives you the name of the collections, not what is where, so it is basically useless...  more »

  • 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.
  • 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
  • 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.
  • This is a hidden gem in Athens. Free entry makes it a great stop.
  • 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.
