The museum's collection of more than 4,500 pieces includes works of haute couture, drawings, painting, sculpture, photography, prints and more. The SCAD Museum of Art is a teaching museum, serving Savannah College of Art and Design students and as well as members of the community and other visitors. A focal point is the Walter O. Evans Center for African American Studies, a multidisciplinary center for the study, understanding and appreciation of African American culture, art and literature. It is complemented by the André Leon Talley Gallery, named for the Vogue contributing editor and SCAD Board of Trustees member.The museum also features a 250-seat theater, a terrace and outdoor projection screen, a conservation studio, a museum café, as well as a 12-foot-long orientation touch table. An 86-foot tall steel and glass lantern welcomes visitors and elegantly redefines the Savannah city skyline.

My visit there was quite fun because the surrounding areas and rooms have different personalities and make you want to stay. The staff there is very welcoming and they are always there to help you understand the artist point of view. The little gift shop was very small and perfect to stop by and refresh yourself, the things they sell... More

The special, exhibit showing while we were there were The Dresses of Fashion Designer Carolyn Herrera. Beautiful dresses, with an excellent guide to describe each of them. Other exhibits were from current and alumni graduates of SCAD. Very innovative, very modern, very cool experience. Highly recommend.

We enjoyed the topics of art and views in this museum. I especially enjoyed the Andre' Leon Talley gallery with the Carolina Herrera fashion exhibit as I love fabric. The other galleries had art, sculpture, and a short film/documentary. You do not have to spend hours and there is something of interest to all. The gallery should have a better... More

Most excellent venue, where you can view student works, permanent installations, and wonderful "A-B" excerpts (photography magazine). Courtyard is gorgeously appointed. The staff are helpful and courteous. Great opportunity to interact with students!

Went on a whim. Loved the Carolina Herrera exhibit. The ballpoint pen art exhibit is impressive. The cut steel art and hand carved birch pieces are mind blowing in detail and you won't believe the amount of time spent by the artist in creating wood piece. The docents are informed and helpful. I would recommend this to anyone who loves... More

We stopped in briefly since our hotel was across the street from the museum. The works are tastefully arranged and what really impressed us was the diversity of artistic media and styles utilized. We were impressed!

We were only in Savannah for a day, but this was our first stop before going just down the street for the Trolley Tour. It is small, but you can easily spend some time here. Our 12 year old son enjoyed it too.

Our visit to SCAD Museum of Art was brief but very enjoyable. The exhibits were excellent and well showcased. The architecture alone was pleasing and the staff was great. Although the Museum was smaller than expected, the budget friendly price makes stopping here worth it.

My son was touring SCAD and I was able to visit the museum. One of the featured exhibits was gowns, including one worn by Lady Gaga. There were paintings, a film, sculptures, photography...something no matter what kind of art you enjoy. I saw an earlier review that said they wish there was more to see and I found myself thinking... More

We were there for a textiles show, my wife loves this stuff, but I enjoyed parts of the displays. I am not anti museum, but this wasn't my usual cup of tea, but the students put on a good show, and I was impressed with the artistic talent seen
