There is always something new and wonderful to see here. Right now Pulitzer Prize winning photographer Brian Lanker's photographs are the newest. The masterpiece rotation currently has a Calder mobile and for Shakespeare's 400th there is an original edition printed in 1623 on display. Come and be surprised! No matter what, the exhibitions are terrific. If you are hungry, a... More

I'm a big fan of this museum anyway, but it's gone up another notch in my book, as it has been awarded the honor of displaying a rare first folio of Shakespeare's works this month. The university has also on display a first folio of Ben Johnson as well as a second and third Shakespeare folio from its own library.... More

small but always interesting University Art Museum. They always have something in their visiting show that is interesting. Small but nice gift shop area. Museum is worth a visit if you are on or near the U of O campus.

It's a lovely place to visit. Wish they had few heritage things from India in their Asian section. Lovely building and friendly staff. Good canteen/ restaurant to eat and relax. The shop is excellent.

Excellent Asian and small contemporary collections. Always something exciting to see on loan, and many very good contemporary shows. For a small museum, it's a gem.

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....
