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.

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

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.
