I haven't been in quite a while, but I remember it being quite enjoyable. We were able to browse as part of another event on the property.

“Make a point to visit.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

This is the place I always direct visitors to our city to. Although not a large museum it has an impressive collection of Southern art, plus interesting traveling exhibits. Free on Sundays and just a nominal fee on other days it is very good value. The Morris also hosts artist luncheon talks, evening artist receptions and free music concerts.

“Beautiful collection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

The museum is sometimes overlooked because it is located in an office building....but it is not to be missed. The permanent collection is set up in chronological order...you can walk through history through the eyes of various artists. The museum also offers temporary exhibits, occasional classes and family free programs on Sundays. It is a wonderful part of Augusta that should not be missed.

“A hidden gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Tucked away in an office bldg. in downtown Augusta, the lovely Morris museum is not to be missed. A serious collection of mostly southern US art, the collection tells the story of colonial and civil war era southern US. Many portrait paintings, as well as many depicting life in the south. Rooms are well laid out, and it is quiet.
I'm not much of an art buff, but I still enjoy going there. (It's free on Sunday afternoons).
