This is one of the best University based Art Museums I have seen. The exhibitions feature, over time, offerings from the students at UNCG as well as offerings from artists from around the world. The permanent collection, while not extensive, is excellent. The Cone sisters have made generous contributions. They and others have provided a solid foundation for this art... More

Some interesting exhibits all in the modern art genre...the building itself is the real star...open and airy. Much of the art will have limited appeal.

Nice small museum right near the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. I have gone several times and have never been disappointed. Another great part is that parking and admission is free :)

This is a nice short visit. You can see everything in a little over an hour. The traveling exhibits on the first floor are always interesting and film presentations that are offered are always informative and a great learning opportunity. Defiantly worth a visit while in Greensboro!

Weatherspoon museum is more than what I expected. For a small museum in a small university, it offers a variety of nice collections with frequent special exhibitions. The admission and parking are free.

This exhibit is not to be missed. This is my third time and it just keeps getting better. The museum is located on UNC-G's campus and has changing exhibits during the year. Art on Paper is my favorite.

This is a very attractive museum of just the right size for an afternoon's visit. It is located on the campus of the Greensboro University of North Carolina which in itself is worth walking around. Exhibits change often and are extremely well presented.

If you enjoy modern art, this is the place to visit! It's hard to believe that there is not a charge to enter. The art is beautifully displayed, accessible to a broad range of art aficionados and engaging. Nancy Doll leads a very knowledgeable staff in presenting the museum's work and supplemented with great works from around the country. Feel... More

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.
