Kind of set away from the bustle of the campus of Auburn University, but it is in a nice quiet spot. Just a few changing exhibits, but they are usually worth stopping in to see.

I was in the museum and the specials all contained meat, which I don't eat. I asked the waiter if there were any way to get something meatless. The chef came up with a special "just for me," that was truly delicious.... a bit more than I normally would have liked to pay, but the food was fresh & sooo... More

We went here for a wedding reception. The grounds are beautiful with cotton fields near by. The sunset off the back patio was beautiful. The entrance has an amazing piece from Dale Chihuly.

Visited for a wedding reception, and it was fantastic. You barely need decorations! The view outside at sunset is incredible. I've also been for a film viewing-- great experience and very comfortable. The staff are very helpful.

My cousin had his wedding ceremony and reception here. It was beautiful and amazing. Wonderful location. You cannot get lost because it is very close to I-85. Close to the University.

The museum never fails to bring about those awww moments. From the moment you enter the grounds with beautiful statuary,to the reflecting pool,and then the foyer, with a gorgeous Dale Chihuly chandelier gracing it's ceiling, you know that you are about to be immersed in some amazing collections. The collections are ever changing, so check the website before going, but... More

Great special exhibits, attend the Gallery Talk if one is scheduled. Watch for events or just stop in and view the exhibits. Very nice. There is a cafe, if you want to plan to have a meal or a drink while you are there

Gorgeous grounds and museum. You can count on seeing many interesting exhibits and displays. Jazz on Thursdays and a nice cafe. It's the right size because you can view the galleries in about an hour or less. Definitely should be on your radar!
