For Augusta, a nice start. No, it isn't the High Museum, and never will be. But some interesting, worth seeing exhibits do pass through, and some permanent loan items are certainly a step of for a mid size Southern city.

The art museum is small but interesting. On Sunday afternoon at 2 pm there are free events which include concerts, lecture, and different interesting activities for families, couples, individuals. Well worth a visit.

Located on the 2nd floor of a downtown office building, alongside Riverwalk, the Morris Museum of Art is dedicated to the art and artists of the South. The Contemporary Glass Exhibit is very interesting and will remain on display until the beginning of September. Discounts offered to students and seniors. The museum shop offers unique gift items.

This is a wonderful small art museum. A true gem in downtown Augusta. Good civil war art. They offer guided and unguided tours with trained docents.

It's worth the visit just to see this beautiful building with detailed architecture inside. The art is mainly from southern artists and so nicely displayed. It's easy to meander from room to room and then return to view favorites. The docent was so informative. If you are in Augusta save an hour or so for this museum.

Attended a program bidding farewell to husband and wife team Malika Favorite and Anthony Kellman. The museum had free parking which brings you right into the main lobby. The event I attended was on the ground floor and had state of the art audio visual equipment, theater like seating and set-up. There was an area to set up display of... More

We are locals and went here for an afternoon. Wonderful artwork and highly educational. The gift shop offers souvenirs and many gift ideas. Will be back to see the next exhibit, John Mellencamp's just left April 12th.

This art museum is surprising eclectic in the variety of artist's work on display. It is just the right size that someone using a walker or cane can make it though; plus there are places to sit and enjoy the art. I find that I quite like to sit and just look at a piece of art for a while.... More
