“excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

The Morris Museum has some of the best Southern art! We always get an email when they get a new exhibit. The staff there is super nice, and they even have strollers for the little ones. Well worth the trip.

“A window into the authentic Southern stories of the past”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

With 10 permanent exhibits complemented with 4 featured exhibits, the Morris is well worth its $5 admission. The pieces are a window into the authentic Southern stories of the past as well as a look into the future with “Abstraction in the South”.

The museum itself is a marvel; just avoid the cliché gift shop which degrades the entire experience.

“A bit of culture you'll love”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

In addition to an amazing permanent collection, this jewel hosts travelling exhibits, and events e.g films, concerts and other artistic activities. I go there as often as possible, and always recommend it to out of town visitors!

“Gem of a museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

If you are in the area of Augusta, the Morris Museum downtown is the place to go to see great art. Two things make this museum unique - 1. the small room spaces makes it cozy, like a comfortable old southern sitting room. - 2. They have one of the best collections of southern impressionism in the country. When we visited there was a collection of folk art that was expertly laid out in the galleries. Well worth a visit while walking around the riverfront.
