We were only impressed with one of the exhibits at the SCAD Museum. I would not recommend anyone go out of their way to visit.

I loved wondering through SCAD. So much to see, so much creativity, so inspiring. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Savannah, as it was a real highlight for me. The museum is small, so it doesn't take long to visit - maybe an hour or so, depending on how long you linger.

A delightful museum-going experience. Wonderful alternate use of space. Be sure to visit SCAD bookstore across the street.

Okay, so art is subjective and I admit, I didn't get all of the exhibits, but there was no shortage of amazing student art work in this museum. The time, energy, effort, and skill these students put into their work is amazing and I was honored to see it. My daughter is considering SCAD after graduation and seeing the work... More

We loved the space - and the great creativity juices of the students and the city. It doesn't take you too much time while it's not far from the historic district. We ended up being jealous of the students because they have such a wonderful campus!

Sorry but I was not impressed, I understand you can not compare it to MoMa or Uffizzi gallery, but can be a lot better. They have a beautiful building and great space, however exhibitions were not impressive, price was average for a museum this size, but there are wasting a lot of space, liked one or two pieces... But will... More

One of the highlights of our Savannah visit! (A word of caution about this review. When we go to NYC we expect MoMA or or the Met; in Florence, the Uffizi; etc. In tiny Historic Savannah we we are delighted to find smaller gems – and we did.) SCAD Museum of Art is a terrific little museum with some lovely,... More

The museum building was beautiful, but the galleries and exhibits were small and non-impressive. I was hoping for something more inspiring but it seemed the selections were student work- like options and did not say much beyond visual appeal.

Maybe this is not my cup of tea. Love the building, like a few pieces, but perhaps I'm too practical. some of this art doesn't seem to show unusual talent. Remined me of my visit to SF MOMA a few years ago. Some cool stuff, sure, but a stack of newspapers in the corner or a stack empty boxes, or... More
