“Definitely worth checking out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

There are always new shows and exhibits here. My favorite is always the MFA show in the spring. The venue is nice and the shows always display talented artists.

“Pleasantly surprised”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

I didn't expect much from UNC's museum, but instead I was suprised. Ackland is a beautiful little museum with artwork from all over the world and from different eras. Good selection of European and American modern art. The temporary exhibits are almost always interesting and worthy of a top tier museum.

“Wonderful + worth your time.”

Do not just walk by, walk in and you will be transported away from the frenzy of Franklin - somewhere new and your soul will thank you.

Nice museum. Small enough to enjoy in an hour or so. Exhibitions change regularly. Worth the visit. Chamber music while we were there..Nice.
