We come to Savannah once a year and I always enjoy visiting this museum. This visit , today, was my favorite thus far. All the exhibits were excellent . The student docents were very friendly and knowledgeable , can't wait to visit again next year.

You won't see the great masters here, but you will see some interesting contemporary design and photos. Very nice traveling print exhibit by Lawrence about Haitii. Students are docents, and they may have a bit to learn about being a bit more interactive, but nice to see them so involved. Quick visit. Nice building, modern renovation of old warehouse.

Stopped by here on a Sunday afternoon & it was a great experience. For $10, it was well worth it. Although not super large, the exhibits were fantastic & impressive. They have student guides every where to help you with any questions & explanations of the artists. I would highly recommend coming here as it was a lovely & fulfilling... More

I took my daughter, a fine artist from NYC, to the SCAD museum for a quick visit on Christmas Eve. There were 4 very interesting and professional exhibits that we were able to view in the 40 minutes before the museum was closing. It was my second visit to Savannah and this museum and I was curious what my daughter... More

We loved our visit to SCAD - reasonably priced for a museum, and really creative artwork and exhibits. Lots of new exhibits regularly.

There were wonderful exhibits each time I visited (10.00 donation, I believe 8.00 with certain status). I absolutely LOVED the display of black gowns there! It is possible to visit SCAD as a part of the trolley tour (I like the 2 day tour that Old Towne Trolley Tour offers, for a discount online, you can ride straight through the... More

The first time I visited, there was a fabric exhibit- a few years ago. Some of the most creative and beautiful pieces ever. This year I was lucky enough to experience the Vivienne Westwood exhibit- incredible clothing, in a very unique exhibit. The student guides are so friendly and knowledgeable and really enhanced the experience. A minor plus is escaping... More

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
