The Museum houses and outstanding and diverse collection, ranging from ancient icons to contemporary art. The Oriental pieces are amazing. The museum also provides a regular program of educational events. We especially enjoyed a Matisse self-portrait. Ironic sketches from Hogarth and Goya were strange and curious.

The Schnitzer Art Museum is definitely one of the finest museums in Oregon. The asian collection is beautiful and educational and the traveling shows are always well worth going to.

Students get in free. Interesting art and visiting exhibits. Something to do while on the UO campus. Not very big so you only need maybe 30 mins to 1 hr. Some really cool items in the gift shop.

Good permanent collection of Chinese & Japanese items as well as a smaller but nice Euro/Russian selection of what seemed mostly religious scenes; a small room of 'visiting masterpieces' which did have some darn high profile items (a Rodin sculpture at the moment); and a couple of large exhibition spaces for whatever the main visiting show of the moment is....

This small art museum located on the University of Oregon campus offers way more than exhibits! Today featured a wonderful Sunday afternoon concert of classical guitar music free to the public, in conjunction with the city’s Bach Festival. Extra events have also included First Friday Art Talks, Art and Healing Workshops, Family Days of Storytelling through Art, Opening Receptions, Gallery... More

This museum tucked away in the back of the Universality is well worth the discovery. A very impressive permanent collection and then they always have something new which is very creative and original. The coffee shop and patio is a nice way to end the day.

Great show of a great talent from Oregon. I believe it's there until sometime in August. Really great images, like vision quest meets an evil dream done in pastel and charcoal and wood and canvas. Just remarkable.

Excellent Asian permanent collection and always interesting temporary exhibits. Well worth a visit any time of year. Down side is difficulty of parking around the university, but not a problem usually at the weekend. Nice restaurant with patio seating in good weather.

I have never seen a bad exhibit here and the building itself is beautiful to see and to be in. There is a small central outdoor courtyard that is very peaceful. The layout and interior design is very pleasing and lends itself well to viewing art. This is a great place to take some time for yourself especially if you... More
