  • We discovered this museum while driving through Savannah. The special exhibit about Jacob Lawrence was worth the admission to this small but well curated museum. Very worthwhile. I believe the exhibit...  more »

  • The student guides a very helpful and informative. The exhibits are brilliant-- very original and forward-thinking. Excellent museum!
  • This museum was quite impressive. Loved seeing the exhibits and learning what SCAD has contributed to this area.
  • Fantastic museum! The best part are the students throughout the building who will tell you all sorts of things about the exhibits-- don't miss interacting with them. What a treat!
  • As a former student, the SCAD Museum had a lot of build up that I never really saw a follow through for. The building itself is definitely beautiful, still trying to understand the atrium though. I just finding myself wishing for more in terms of the actual exhibits. The museum also puts the students in a bit of a predicament because the hours when the museum is closed, the courtyard is as well. This courtyard is attached to a SCAD 24 hour academic building, that without access to the courtyard, loses a major entrance and exit. I really enjoyed the Black Dress exhibit and wish that the museum could include more enticing collections like that one. I give the museum a higher vote just in the hopes that it will start including more exhibits like this. I would also love if the museum were to have a SCAD student collection on display at all times, because I feel like if people wish to visit a SCAD Museum, we should showcase what we've got right under our noses on our own campus.
  • What it lacks in size is made up for by amazing exhibits & staff!
