We like the interactive (children's) section. Current special exhibit is great, even if you are not normally into religious art. Nice roof top sculpture garden. Size of the exhibit space allows visitors to see the whole museum in a morning. Smaller, changing exhibits are well done and permits visitors to see several styles of art in one visit. On the...

it is interactive fun for the whole family, though the hands on is not the most sanitary. We liked taking the children when they were younger.

This is a stellar showing of religious art. We have been to Florence, Italy to see them and there were so many on a wall that it is hard to view. You will not be disappointed and make sure you get the audio for your tour. Plan on one and one half hour for just this exhibit.

Well, I don' t know what it would have been like had it been open to the public like it usually is, because it wasn't. I had looked at their website well in advance of my visit, and planned to visit the Uffizi exhibit. However, upon arriving, I was surprised to find that the gallery was closed for 2 1/2... More

My wife and I visited the Jepson Center during a recent vacation to Savannah. The main reason for our visit was to see the Offering of the Angels art exhibit on loan from the Uffizi Gallery in Florence Italy.Upon arriving at the center, we were struck by its beautiful modern architecture located in the middle of the historic district.While a...

I had forgotten how long i had been since I had viewed truly great art. The Jepson bldg it self is beautiful. If you are in the area before 3/31/2013, you must go see Offering of the Angels.

We stumbled across this gallery while exploring Savannah so had no expectations. The building itself is stunning and a pleasure to be in. The modern exhibits were highly engaging - for example an entire room was converted into a Pakman game you could play while lying down in the middle of the room. The other painting exhibits options were sparse... More

The art was beautiful... but the people were very rude... And they don't allow you to take pictures at all.
