In addition to an amazing permanent collection, this jewel hosts travelling exhibits, and events e.g films, concerts and other artistic activities. I go there as often as possible, and always recommend it to out of town visitors!

If you are in the area of Augusta, the Morris Museum downtown is the place to go to see great art. Two things make this museum unique - 1. the small room spaces makes it cozy, like a comfortable old southern sitting room. - 2. They have one of the best collections of southern impressionism in the country. When we... More

The Morris Museum of Art is the premier museum of Southern Art. The collection is superb and the programs for members is exceptional. The print fair in January is a very special event with one of the kind prints and print makers. The Gala, the first Friday in March, is the most, coveted fundraiser in the area. Beautiful museum for... More

Definitely worth a visit whether one lives in Augusta or visits Augusta. This is a museum of southern art, but covers civil war era to modern art, paintings and sculptures. There is a gift shop but I did not have time to wander thru it. The gallery is lovely, will re-visit when I have more time to wander and absorb.... More

We had a reception in the museum and a chance to look around. The museum houses some interesting historical paintings which tell about the history of Georgia. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Well worth a visit.

I went on a Sunday when it was free admission, good thing too. It only took about 30 minutes to look at everything. The actual content was nice and high quality pieces, but the small size is very underwhelming. Reminded me of a small college gallery. Augusta needs to try harder.

The art was very varied and interesting. The staff we extremly friendly and helpful.The museum is just off the river walk. Would definitely... More

I did not visit the actual museum but I did go into the shop. I found several items to put away for Christmas. I would strongly recommend this shop.

By any measure, this museum of displayed art is stunning. Changing special exhibitions encourage repeat attendance throughout the year. It is very easy to develop 'favorites' you look forward to seeing again and again. The works fit the scale of the display space beautifully, and the staff are always polite and welcoming. Always a fun destination after a nice meal... More
