Beautiful place!

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.

Nice place but a limited collection of display. The Asian Art section at the back of the building is the most interesting "space" and the Japanese garden outside that space is attractive - although appearing to suffer from drought.

I loved this museum. It was bright, spacious and well-organized. And it had a great selection of art in many disciplines. There is a pond and bridge in the back that is beautiful. I assumed it was a new museum, because it was so neat and clean, but was surprised to learn it was 25 years old. I have visited... More

This was our first visit to the Harn Museum. It is a spacious, very new-looking space that offered a pleasing variety of exhibits when were there in early May. The atmospheric black-and-white photos by Michael Kenna were wonderful to look at. The exhibits on nature and art held wonderful drawings, paintings, carvings, etc., inspired by nature. I was impressed with... More

This is a great "art space" -- airy and bright and so relaxing. Serious American Impressionists (some delightfully new to me), Tiffany glass, Frank Stells, and a magnificent African Mask Collection displayed in part as these masks from Burkino Faso would be seen -- in near darkness with tribal music -- all make this one of my top smaller museums....
