“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

The Morris Museum surprised me with its well-thought out exhibits of art relating to the Southern experience. The quality of the overall collection is higher than what I had expected to see in a regional art museum and displayed multiple perspectives of the history of the South. The museum has cork floors, which are soft to stand on and also dampen noise, and benches in each gallery. The museum is easy to get to, being right off the Riverwalk, and is in the heart of the downtown area.

“Close culture”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

Nice to have a place of culture in the neighborhood. They have wonderful "hands on" events for families on Sundays. A family "must" to look into.

“Nice museum”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

Located on the second floor of an office building, which was kind of strange, but a nice collection of art, certainly worth the visit for anyone who likes museums.
