The museum, part of UNCG, is a world class museum. It is large, open, and offeres changing exhibits. Historic artists such as Matisse and contempory artist are often features. Easy to park.

Just like being in Washington DC land of free museums! The Weatherspoon has a wonderful collection of their own along with changing exhibits that will enthrall you and challenge your thinking. Spacious high ceiling galleries and a wonderful lecture theater allow the Weatherspoon to offer many events to coincide with their exhibits. We viewed Food for Thought running through the... More

This art museum isn't that big and doesn't have many exhibits. The exhibits it does have tend to focus on themed modern art. I'm not the big modern art fan so I'm not a good opinion for someone who is if they'd like the museum or not. It doesn't take long to see the exhibits because they only have three... More

I enjoyed my visit to the museum. It was the first time I had visited and there was plenty to see. If you have a chance to get to UNCG and visit this, it is well worth the time. I would call or check online to see what is on exhibit before going, just so you know what is there... More

This museum has a nice aesthetic, IMHO. Small enough to see it all in a couple hours. Friendly staff. Rarely close to crowded. No admittance charge!

Best kept secret in Greensboro on the campus of UNC-Greensboro. Beautiful edifice with local/national and international exhibitions.

This is a decent Art Museum. Most of the exhibits seem like stuff out of someone's garage they deemed art. There were also quite a few exhibits that were inappropriate for young children - nudity and violent. Of course, I understand the art of such things, but it was just weird.

A friend and I went to the exhibition called "Zone of Contention" and spent a couple hours looking at everything. It was laid out very well. The museum was quiet, so we were able to contemplate the works. Afterward, we stopped by the gift shop. The cashier was friendly and helpful. I 'm looking forward to going again.

The Weatherspoon is an often missed jewel in Greensboro. The ever changing shows are always interesting and sometimes edgy. Although they are open during regular business hours, I like going on a Thursday night, the only time they are open in the evening. Since the shows change regularly, there is always something new to see and I always feel comfortable,... More

tremendous exhibits -- helpful staff but they leave you alone and you don't feel pressured to donate, although it's a pleasure to do so as each time I visit I'm enriched!
