  • Take the guided tour. It is short and you will get a greater understanding of the museum, house and academy.  more »
  • I have been going to the Telfair and now the Jepson for many years-it really is a wonderful place-its where "The Bird Girl" now resides. Wonderfully curated -a true Savannah treasure!  more »
  • This is a beautiful old mansion that now houses an art collection - mostly American artists with some French painters - and some sculpture.  more »

  • This museum is small compared to more well known ones but does offer some interesting items. The displays seem small within the huge rooms. There are a few pieces of art that are very large. For my taste, some of the military themed pieces rival any I've seen. It is a contrast with the local artisans work showing southern culture next to the Telfair collection of Roman re-creations. Still, a worthwhile place to visit while in Savannah.
  • Little gem of a museum, quick in and out (can be seen pretty thoroughly in 90 minutes on your own), tours offered, some gorgeous pieces and a few well-known artists. Admission here is also good at Jepson Center next door and valid over a week, so don't balk at the ticket price ($20 w/o coupon or Groupon per adult). Nice place to hide from the heat; it's cool and quiet.
  • The tour guide was very knowledgeable. Nice little museum.
  • the art and house is beautiful and very well presented. i love learning the history of the house but would love to know more about the architecture and the building of the house. also now benches would be great to sit and view the art more.
  • A small collection, but there are some beauties here - La Parabola being one.
