A beautiful gem of a museum

Spacious galleries, remarkable changing exhibits, and a broad permanent collection. Staff is friendly and helpful. It's a great outing solo, with family, or with a group.

We were in town for a retirement party and decided to check out this local art museum. First, the staff was beyond pleasant and helpful. Second, the museum was not packed and one could wander and view without crowds getting in the way. We were so please to find that one of the exhibits was "Mirror, Mirror...Portraits of Frida Kahlo".... More

I had a 13 and 10 year old and they were good about not touching and could read all the plaques. I wouldn't take little walking ones there. It was free to get in, air conditioned and all flat walking. We enjoyed ourselves.

The museum was just the right size for an afternoon visit. They have a nice selection and we really enjoyed it. The outdoor exhibits were beautiful.

The Hamm was quite a visit. It wasn't the largest museum and didn't get too crowded with tourists aroud signature paintings. But the multiculturalism of the exhibits and not being hurried on or jostled about was nice. I had time to consider the Monets, the pottery, the Asian boddhisatvah, or the African masks. I also really liked the oils of... More

Worth the visit. Beautiful facilities and art pieces. And the best part, it is free not only to students, but to the entire community!

I went to this museum because they had the Frida Kahlo exhibit currently. I found the other pieces to all be interesting as well, and there's all different mediums from painting to pottery to photography. It was very clean and the interior of the building was nice. It was free (other than $4 to park) which was a plus.

My husband and I visited the art museum and the natural history museum within two days. The art museum features many different pieces. It is very informative! There are many different security guards around the museum. There are also regular staff members walking around to answer any questions that you may have. This is a great museum to stop in... More

The Harn is a great place to visit - not once - but over and over again. The Harn has many changing exhibits in addition to its permanent ones. It is a very relaxing museum where you can really absorb the exhibits and take time to digest what you see. A real gem in Gainesville.
