One of the largest university art museums in the country. A real treasure for the city of Gainesville and for the University of Florida students.

I am a very frequent visitor to the Harn Museum. It's a beautiful spot, especially the Asian wing, which is a tranquil experience. Their collection is varied and interesting with changing shows frequently. We are very fortunate to have it in Gainesville.

Great stop off point in a visit to Gainesville. There is no admission charge to the museum -- just give what you like. A large variety of art and periods covered and an interesting store. I

Place has some decent art for being affiliated with a university. It's maybe on par with other art museums from universities I've seen, but it's interesting to gander through on a day when you just want to get out and do something. We wandered in after going to the Natural History Museum next door.

Great atmosphere. Great art. And best of all.... Free! Where else can you go and see a real Monet for free? Right next door to the natural history museum which is also free. These two places are a must do when in Gainesville!

Living in Gainesville, we forget we have such a wonderful museum. The building is beautiful and spacious. The docents were very knowledgeable and helpful and the young woman that greeted us was especially enthusiastic about the museum and the different collections. We have a Monet - DO NOT MISS IT. Three of the exhibitions were "on loan" and they were... More

The Harn Museum has exhibitions from Asia, Africa, and modern American, European, and Latin American art. The Asian Art Wing has different galleries: Ceramics; Religion: Sculpture in the Round; Jades; Korean Art; and, Wit and Wonder of Kogo Incense Boxes. The Jade exhibit was breathtaking! The highlight of my visit was Claude Monet's Champ d'avoine (Oat Field). A wonderful time... More
