The federal government once utilized this museum as an alternate place to display and protect some of this country's art treasures. Although it is not huge, the quality of the art is very good for a rather small space. The artworks on display represent a small portion of the collection, so each time you visit there is something new to... More

We decided to check out this museum based on other Trip Advisor reviews. We didn't think it was a 5, but we enjoyed the short visit and the trip through Randolph College as well. The Maier has a Winslow Homer, a Georgia O'Keefe, a George Stewart, a Whistler and an Edward Hopper to name a few. We enjoyed it for... More

The collection is high class and to notch. A surprising gem tucked away on a picturesque campus. The pieces were high quality and some well known artists, but not their more recognizeable pieces.

This is on the campus of Randolph College, tucked away behind the athletic fields. They have a small but well curated collection of American art, including pieces from Whistler and Hopper. Don't miss it!

The Maier Museum of Art houses the art collection of Randolph College and it's a relatively small collection but with at least a dozen gems that make a visit really worthwhile. You can see the entire collection (at least what's on display) in about an hour, but if you wish to linger, you could easily spend an hour and-a-half there.... More

The Meier Museum of Art houses the remarkable collection of American art of Randolph College. The collection includes the work of many of the super famous American artists of the twentieth century, including Gilbert Stuart, James McNeil Whistler, and Georgia O'Keeffe. Typically there is a special exhibition on exhibit, along with the permanent collection. When I visited in May, there... More

What a treat to be at a museum without the crowds! You can take your time to absorb the beauty in these paintings, many of which would be coveted by The Phillips Collection in Washington DC and even the National Gallery. Staff was very knowledgeable and shared info about many of the paintings. And it's all free...
