One of America's finest small museums.

Not a giant collection of Asian art--- but what you see from Japan, Korea, and China is very fine. The American collection is good and a bonus is the tax laws that allow new... read more

The galleries, on the second floor, have a little bit of this and a little bit of that - a small selection of European paintings, a smaller selection of modern American art, some Japanese, Chinese, and Korean art. Each area has at least one outstanding work. I particularly liked the fine Russian lacquerware, several prints by American artists working in... More

Not a giant collection of Asian art--- but what you see from Japan, Korea, and China is very fine. The American collection is good and a bonus is the tax laws that allow new owners of art purchased overseas to exhibit their works temporarily in Oregon and get major tax breaks: Rubens, Dubuffet and Hockney currently exhibited. There is a... More

Because I like visiting galleries and museums, I visited the Museum at the University expecting to pop in for half an hour. Three hours later I left, amazed at the quality and breadth of the art collection and the Chinese and other Asian artifacts. I was particularly taken with the exhibition of selected children's work, based on the theme "The... More

This is a good place to spend an afternoon if in Eugene. The museum has an interesting and good collection of art, there is a good cafe on the lower level, and it's near everything on UO campus.

Women's social group visited in February. A nice museum where you can see everything in two hours. We had inquired about parking and told to be there when it opened to get one of the spaces on the side of building. Good tip! Very pleasant experience.

The Jordan Schnitzer Museum has a wonderful Asian art collection representing the art of China, Japan, Korea, Mongolia, Cambodia and Russia. They also have a variety of exhibitions throughout the year. The museum is located on the grounds of the University of Oregon and is an architectural masterpiece of decorative brickwork. You will see beautiful iron grillwork and there is... More

This museum was wonderful for the size and had some beautiful pieces. The staff was both friendly and helpful. It included pieces from the community and the school which was nice to see.

The Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art in the heart of the campus of the University of Oregon is an unexpected oasis from the bustling scene outside. Admission is a bargain at $5 for adults/$3 Seniors and free for 18 and under. Even though our daughter went to the U of O, we had never visited this charming museum while she... More
