Enjoyable stroll through Southern art.

Impressed by the art and how it was displayed. Nice setting with a riverwalk right outside the door.

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

First enjoy the interesting story & ship drawings at the top of the entrance stairs. Nice selection of art organized by category. Some special exhibits. Good gift shop. Convenient to Marriott hotel & River walk.

I understand the purpose of security here, but he can lay off too. I think someone would notice if you walked out with a painting. Just let people walk through on their own without being hovered over like thieves.

If you are traveling or live near Augusta, Georgia, you need to spend some time at the Morris Museum of Art. Check ahead of time as they have a lot of thing going on during the year in addition to the current exhibits. For its size it is a wonderful place to visit.

Unique place but the security guard follows you around like you are some sort of criminal. It kind of makes you just want to get out of there more than enjoy the paintings and take in the history associated with each one.
