Moved to Mizzou North, on Business Loop 70, you can see te building to the south from I-70 between West Blvd and Providence exits. The Cast Gallery is open now and a good balance of the 15,000 piece exhibits open Spring of 2015. There is a great restaurant on the ground (basement) floor catered by The University Club. It will...

This is where I went to school, taught art classes, bought really neat jewelry and go to see new art shows. There are Docents that know what they are talking about. It is right on the MU campus.

The museum has an amazingly good collection for its size. There is a hall of statuary and exhibits that span the history of art. There is a cool collection of archeological artifacts as well. It even has a gift shop! It is definitely worth a stop.

The Museum of Art and Archaeology is on the MU campus and has a surprisingly rounded collection of both art and archaeological treasures dating from before Egypt through modern art. There are focused exhibits that change frequently, a favorite of mine being the exhibit on the watercolor artist Keith Crown who worked a lot in the Taos area. It can... More

This museum provides a view of art and antiquities from many different parts of the world. Of course we go to museums in St. Louis and Kansas City but when you cannot leave town and want to browse among ancient artifacts and art, you can enjoy a satisfying hour or two here.

The Museum of Art and Archaeology is one of two excellent museums on the University of Missouri campus; the other is the Museum of Anthropology. Both museums are in the process of moving out of their on-campus buildings so they can be renovated and will move into the university's north campus adjacent to I-70. They are both still open; the...

My husband, our 2 teen sons and I visited the museum just last week. The museum is easy to find, although parking was a little tough. But we found some just up the street. But the website does direct you to parking lots, we forgot our printout. Loved the Missouri Artists section, great piece by Thomas Hart Benton. Also loved... More

Large museum with multiple exhibits. The price is the best you will find... Free. The exhibits rotate so you won't always see the same things.

I LOVE going and hanging out in this museum. They have an excellent collection. Their private collection that is not on display is even more amazing. I highly recommend visiting while you are on campus. This is truly a hidden gem in Columbia, MO and on the Mizzou Campus! I'm a former MU Art Student, so I will warn you,... More
