Love Savannah's historical character but after awhile I became numb to the backward-looking focus. A few hours in the SCAD Museum was just the right experience to balance the focus on names and dates. The space is fantastic, huge, clean lines, yet maintains the Savannah historic vibe since it's a renovation of an old building. Each room's exhibit was a... More

Very well laid out exhibits. All appear to be temporary as if there is no permanent collection. So, what you will see varies every time you visit. Docents are quite knowledgeable.

The SCAD museum would be interesting to someone who is into modern art, unfortunately that someone isn't me. The exhibits were well presented, but scattered. A large part of the museum is dedicated to interactive children's exhibits, we didn't have any with us so I didn't find it very interesting, but if you do have children then I'm sure they... More

Interesting museum with exhibits on furniture design, photography, paper art, wall exhibitions, and video exhibits. Docents at every turn, helpful, willing to explain the exhibits. Inexpensive. Needs to be even bigger. Highly recommended.

We visited the SCAD museum and loved it. All three of my children found it interesting, which is quite an achievement. The Andre 3000 and Vivienne Westwood displays were really interesting. My personal favourite was Li Hongbo's paper sculpture. The museum is beautifully presented and the atmosphere is calm, with students on hand to talk about the installations. My only... More

I loved the art in there, but I really wished they had more to see! I really enjoyed the exhibit that they had by Andre 3000, that was the highlight for me. Would definitely recommend to anyone who is interested in modern art.

We were in town to visit SCAD with our youngest. We visited the museum and appreciated the exhibits! This is not for people looking for ols school oil paintings and works of art - it is for those who appreciate contemporary and edgy creations.

While it may be a great school, the actual location of the museum and the total lack of information from the staff had us forego even visiting. It's a shame for they could have a natural draw from visitors to the historic district.

This calls itself a museum but is really a building of art classrooms with 3 small rooms of artwork by former students. $8 senior admission fee, should have been free. Most of the art was what I call "put-on's"--the artist pulling your leg, art for the sake of shock. There were a few interesting things but the room of black-clad... More

Great museum for fahionistas because of the Andre Leon Talley gallery with shows curated by him. Oscar de la Renta recently finished, and until September 13, Vivienne Westwood is on display, The show is is an interesting combination of her fashions with art and furniture from the SCAD collection which compliment the curator's vision. It's one of the best fashion... More
