Local artists - wow! Small flavor of cultures, diverse mediums, many periods were on display. There were even local students' works - wonderful idea. Nominal entrance fees and beautifully maintained…handouts are nice presentations.

IF you can find the University of Oregon campus entrance, navigate the wretched one-way streets and packs of bicyclists, you might be able to park in one of the eight dedicated parking spaces. Otherwise, you will find yourself parking on the street and walking to the museum from there. After a short stroll through the beautiful university grounds, you arrive... More

The old museum is incorporated into the newer structure. My favorite feature is a formal pond in a long, narrow "room", the peaceful spot I visited repeatedly decades ago when I felt far too busy and hurried.

Run by the downtown restaurant Marche, this is a very casual bistro type restaurant. Salads and soups are great, as are the backed goods. More or less self-service. Great stop when you're visiting the Museum. Nice mix of clientele.

Large building. $3 for seniors. Some modern art, a large room of Japanese things, Korean calligraphy. One room of third-rate European painting. Did the whole thing in twenty minutes.

I've gone through this interesting museum a few times, as my children one at a time considered the University of Oregon as their college and came for a campus tour. From the outside it's almost impossible to guess it's a traditional art museum within, and I must say that every visit has proved surprising, both for the range and the... More

Since it was a guided tour, we stayed with the docent. We did not have time to spend any great time at exhibits that interested us. The museum was closed that day which made viewing easier. We only really saw the Chinese, Japanese, and Korean art. I would have liked to have spent more time in the women's display section.

From the outside, it's hard to tell that there are amazing works of art inside. I have always loved the courtyard and their Rodin sculptures. The museum has free admission on the first Friday of each month and during home Duck football games.

Eugene's world famous scrap metal dealer has given the UO a world class museum. The Leslie Dill Exhibit, 'Poetic Visions' brought us back several times and is just one example of the continual trail of excellent exhibits being shown. No continent is left out of the museum collection and its exhibit schedule. The cost of an annual membership is quite... More

We continued our 'introduction to museum manners' spending over 2 hours here, learning and enjoying the 'finer things in life'!! The variety - from school children to the 'masters'' to the 60's & 70's to Korea to "construction" interactive examples - we flowed and were surprised when we realized how quickly the time went!
