Great Museum

The museum on campus has a number of great treasures in its possession. It was nice to see some of Jacobs Lawrence's early work.

My son and his wife held their wedding on Campus in the Chapel and the reception at the Student Center. Both facilities were awesome and we had a great time. The Setting for the Wedding could not have been any better than what we experienced. The Student Center was simply beautiful and a great venue to have a reception. My... More

Worth a few of this historic campus and emancipation oak. A perfect home by the sea for students and faculty. A lovely spot with a well curated art museum that is worth a visit.

Highly recommended Hampton University's museum to any locals who haven't been lately and a definite must for all outer town guest. Rich in displaying the history of HU's beginning. Native American and African collection is huge. Excellent fine and contemporary art collection including many original works. Exhibits do change so visit often. And it's FREE. Donations are appreciated.
