“SCAD Museum of Art”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Visited on June 22nd and enjoyed the experience. Of particular interest were the original dresses worn by Hollywood leading ladies at red carpet events, etc. Of course you cannot touch, but get a close-up view of them. Also enjoyed the wooden art displayed at that time. The Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD) is a very prestigious art school and you can see why.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

Very few works. Not very interesting works. Certainly not worth $10. A great space for a museum, though.

“Student Artwork Displayed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

We were only impressed with one of the exhibits at the SCAD Museum. I would not recommend anyone go out of their way to visit.

“Creative, expressive, intriguing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

I loved wondering through SCAD. So much to see, so much creativity, so inspiring. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Savannah, as it was a real highlight for me. The museum is small, so it doesn't take long to visit - maybe an hour or so, depending on how long you linger.

A delightful museum-going experience. Wonderful alternate use of space. Be sure to visit SCAD bookstore across the street.
