My husband and I had plans that were spoiled so we decided to come here for a visit. It's an affordable place to go. We loved seeing all the art and it was a nice stop to get away from all the hustle and bustle. Oh yes it's free on Sundays.

I love to stroll around this museum on Sundays with my guy. It's a nice place to go where it's quiet. Much of the art is outstanding! Nice little gift shop, too.

This is one of those places that I always makes me feel better. I've been going here since I was a little girl. Its paintings still have a mesmerizing impact.

We try to go to museums whenever we travel and this is now near the top of our list...not because it has masterpieces, but because the way that it was laid out, made it perfect viewing of all of artwork...Southern artists, civil war depictions, modern art, a few sculptures and a perfect museum gift shop with prices that you will...

We thoroughly enjoyed this museum. We just happened on it when visiting the Riverwalk. Lovely paintings that told many stories in the history of the south and our country (USA). It was really worth the visit and a good way to spend a couple hours while in Augusta.

Like another reviewer, we were here during Hurricane Matthew. We were surprised to find some extraordinary pieces in a collection that is not overwhelming in size. It's definitely worth a visit if you are in Augusta.

I had to drag my husband there. I am an artist, so I would stop at every museum along the way, but this one was special because of the building itself. It really is beautiful.

What a nice collection of southern art. You can comfortably see the collection in an hour or so. Art Matters!
