I would have given them one star except for the very talkative and informative person at the front desk. And the really cool touch screen table. It turns out there are times that they redo the exhibits here. And the day we were there they were redoing ALL the exhibits. Ok there was one small section with a few paintings... More

The SCAD Museum is a jewel! So glad we opted to go. We have known about the terrific school for years but had not seen the museum. It is a lovely clean space - a bit awkward as it is a long rectangle but the site required the design. The exhibits do change regularly so check out the website before... More

We were visiting the SCAD campus and went in the lobby area. It costs to see the display and having a little one with us we opted not to go in. The grounds are meticulously kept. The building is impressive.

This is a wonderful addition to a classic southern city. The museum offered an insight into the entire Southern Art movement in the UNited states,. The many "rooms" display a number of artists that we were not familiar with and in multiple mediums that we were not used to. There are a number of different presentations, each apparently rotated through... More

I was not impressed by the art museums, BUT I live in Cleveland and ours is the best so its tough comparing the 2. I think the cost is ridiculous considering Clev is free.

I went to this museum with my girlfriend and two boys (8 & 11) in June of 2014. We had an excellent time. The exhibits are unique (huge sculpture of rope, room with red lights and mirrors, etc.) My son talked to one of the students working at the museum who was majoring in video game design and he had...

After reading both extremely positive and negative reviews of this art museum, I chose to visit with some trepidation. I am so glad I did. While small, the museum had many memorable pieces of art by some artists that I had not encountered in the past. I found myself so impressed with this museum's rotating collection that I decided to... More

Great for spending a hour or so just experiencing interesting portfolios and talking to the student docents.

Nice museum; love how they've repurposed an old building into a work of art in itself. SCAD students are available to guide and educate, and it's obvious that they love what they do. It poured down rain while we were inside which just added to the ambiance. What's better than prowling around a museum on a rainy day? Way to... More
