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.

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!
