If you don't visit the Harn then you have fouled yourself out of enjoying an excellent opportunity. Easily among the best fine art collections of any state-sponsored university museum, and the envy of many privately-sponsored ones. Add no admission, and free parking. A Gainesville treasure.

Beautiful museum with a broad selection of art. The architecture is of modern style, with ample rooms very well lit. It is worth to stop by and visit while in Gainesville.

Unless you're a Florida Gators football fan, there's not much in Gainesville to get excited about. That's why we were so delightfully surprised by our visit to the Harn which turns out to be a small gem of museum. We spent several hours viewing several...More

This is a beautiful facility, located on the campus of UF. Is is perhaps the nicest facility I have ever seen, but the broad content was disappointing. There was however a great display of etchings which were world class.

It took us about two hours if your reading each plaque. Shorter if your just visually looking.
