  • We spent a nice hour investigating this small museum in Charlottesville. It was such a surprise to see this Australian Aboriginal Art in the Virginia countryside! 
  • What a gem. This is a small but very interesting collection and in our brief visit we learned a lot about aboriginal art. Special exhibits are placed by the artists themselves on visits to UVA and are...  more »

  • This was a pleasant surprise for us. It is "out of the way" but the location is beautiful and a short, easy drive from downtown Charlottesville. The attendant was engaging and helped our 7 year old son feel welcome. The collection itself is not large but I felt this kept it from being overwhelming and allowed us to really take in what was there. There was a scavenger hunt for my son along with a drawing project which helped keep him engaged while his dad and I looked around. The gift shop is small but tasteful and had items to fit any budget. If you are interested in Art, Anthropology, or Indigenous rights I highly recommend making a visit.
  • You would think that being in relation to Kluge they would've found better pieces of art work. The collection I saw was pretty boring, old, and dusty. The person I saw in there was nice, but it doesn't make up for the driving factor, and the finding the place factor. It should be in a better location with a couple better pieces and not "off the beaten path."
