I enjoyed this museum and the exhibits that were on display. It was a little difficult to navigate parking in the campus traffic but once inside I have no complaints.

Tried to visit on a Sunday and a Monday during Feb but completely closed and no sign on the entrance door to explain hours. Tried to find someone to help - stopped two people going into School of Art but they did not know.

For little to no cost (donation appreciated) this is a great art museum for such a small city. We have gone to many special events and appreciated Dr. and Mrs. Odum's donations that helped make this a better museum. I need to get there again this year for their special shows.

I'm not an art person, but I had a class that visited this place. It's brand new and amazing inside and out. If you like art, then you'll love this place!
