This University is a very unique place to visit. The baseball field with its seating under flags looks like something out of Harry Potter. There are beautiful buildings that make this campus truly unique. It is a nice place to stop by and see if...More

This little campus is beyond lovely. If you enjoy strolling around the halls of ivy, you simply must visit this little jewel. Allow time to enjoy the Oglethorpe Museum of Art. It's the top floor of the Library building. Always an excellent exhibit. Easily enjoyed...More

Oglethorpe Museum has done it yet again! Currently exhibiting Nuido, the way of Japanese Embroidery (unfortunately departing March 6), it is another jaw dropping, fabulous exhibit by this wonderful museum. On just one floor of the campus library, the museum is so do-able and intimate,...More

I have to admit OUMA is part of my university, but regardless, it's a gem. Two main galleries. Three or four shows a year. Very high quality and overall, a wonderful place to visit or meet a friend.

I'm surprised they charge $5 admission considering how small the "museum" is. And calling it a museum is pushing it because it's on the third floor of a library. I came to this because apparently they had some exhibit on Albert Einstein but all they...More

Had the exhibits as advertized but is very small and out of the way. Not really worth the effort to get there. Best part were the high school artists' works.
