“small but deep”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012

a good selection of modern art, even local artists and object coming from Asia and Africa. They should introduce the exhibition rooms with a sort of screen illustrating the collections.

“free to attend”

not a big "art" person but it's free and right next door to Florida Museum of Natural History which is also free to attend - both located on campus of University of Florda

“Great place to view old and new works of art”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2012

UF's Art Museum. If you like Art - stop in a check it out. Always a nice time by myself or with the kids - they always seem to enjoy a trip to the Harn. Enjoying a day by myself to take a nice breather from the mundane....

“Culture in G-ville”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2012

The Harn is consistently a gem in Gainesville that I feel is overlooked by too many people. For a town of this size the works and exhibits are fantastic. The atmosphere is reverent and feels like any quality museum in bigger cities. It should be a regular destination for more people. A great place for a rainy day to wander and just escape from the hustle and bustle of the outside world. I am thankful it is here.

“Harn Museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2012

This museum, located next to the FL Museum of Natural History, is on a smallish scale, but it packs a LOT of art. Everything from sculptures to paintings/drawings, to photography. Great place to visit.
