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.

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!

This is a small but very interesting museum. The art displayed starts from the colonial eras all the way to the modern era. It was quiet and enjoyable and includes a gift shop with related products.

Regina is correct. I went to the Museum on a Sunday, and so it was free. I don't know what the regular rate is.
