We had planned on spending several hours here --but saw everything in 15 minutes. Couldn't believe they think they are a museum! They need to close the doors, shut down and save tax payer dollars. (We enjoyed Cummer Museum.)

The MOCA as it is called, is a unique little museum new to the City of Jacksonville. The displays are by local artists or by professors who work for the University of North Florida who helps run this museum. The second floor was dedicated to a Chinese artist exhibition of paintings and sculpture and was quite interesting. The galleries were also filled with recent works by the professional artists that work at the college and their works filled the other side of the galleries. On the Fifth floor, it is dedicated to student art and workshops. The main level has a small gallery space, a musical sculpture and a small cafe restaurant. That was the only problem with the museum is that it smelled of brunt toast and grilled cheese. The smells of the restaurant could be had all over the museum's open air concept. You can see the whole museum in about an hour and a half and not be over-whelmed by it. Another observation is that there is a big homeless population outside the museum and don't let them intimidate you. I found the area very safe.

We visited last weekend before the new 3rd floor exhibit opened. We really enjoyed the atrium exhibit and the 5th floor art produced by children at local hospitals. This is a small museum and great escape for an hour from the summer heat.

This museum is great because it's 1. cheap to visit 2. Has an awesome kids play area with all kinds of hands-on activities to keep them busy. 3 has some really nice artifacts that are accompanied by a listening station that has the voices of children interpreting some of the pieces. 4. Offers classes in a couple of the rooms on the 5th floor. We stumbled in on a pottery class and it was awesome. 5. it's open late and offers free entry to military personnel and I believe police and firefighters as well.

I only visit this museum a couple times a year, but I always enjoy the exhibits. My daughter also does summer camp here, and the programs are excellent. The exhibit space is open and light. They usually have an interesting large installation in the entrance area. It is open for free on Art Walk nights too. I highly recommend a visit.
