  • Was a nice place to wander around on an afternoon date. I enjoyed the different exhibits. I will say it doesn’t change that much over time though. The last time I was there was about 5 years ago and a good bit of the art was still the same. All and all would recommend it.
  • Visited for a home school field trip. All in all, the young ones had a good time. The guide made it as interesting as as she could for a group of curious 1st graders walking around an art museum, not being allowed to touch anything :). She interacted with them, asked them questions, they answered, and also had a few questions. It was a success!
  • Admission is free, and parking is free after 3:30pm weekdays and free all day Saturday and Sunday. Closed Mondays. Outstanding art museum with changing exhibitions and plenty of events, lectures, and activities for families. Super friendly staff, wheelchairs available on site, cafe open for lunch, and lovely gardens. The gift store carries a wide range of high-quality gifts, from inexpensive souvenirs to fine art treasures. The Harn is a great place to spend an afternoon relaxing, learning and simply being amazed.
  • When my wife and I travel to Gainesville we always make sure we visit the Harn! It is one of the first dates we went on as a new couple and it will always hold the same magic. The location is beautiful, it is across the street from UF campus, and the artwork rotates fairly consistently. We love it and will always recommend the Harn to EVERYONE!
  • Great museum for contemporary art. We really enjoy our visits here especially without children when we have a chance to really take in the creativity. Don't forget to spend some time in the gardens #travelformortals
