  • 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.
