“Small - room to grow”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

This museum has room to grow. Some shows are great, and others you wonder why they bothered. They do host some fun events, so keep an eye on it for those times. Otherwise, might be better to go to one of our bigger museums.

“Definitely worth a visit.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

This is a small but wonderfully entertaining museum. Log in to the website to keep track of the openings, which are always worth attending. It is the focal point for Florida art and artists which sets it apart from other museums. It's also in close proximity to both the museum at Stetson and the Florida Museum for Women Artists in downtown Deland, so one can see all three museums within walking distance.

This is an outstanding museum featuring some of the state's best known artists. Their changing exhibits are worthy of many visits each year. Don't miss any of them!!!

“One of a Kind Museum"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2011

This is a fantastic small museum in the quaint little town of Deland right between Orlando and Daytona. The exibits consist of only works from Florida artists and the art is diverse and interesting. If you happen to be in the area visiting the Stetson Mansion or the Henry Deland House I would recommend you stop and enjoy the art and than have lunch in one of the many downtown eateries.
