How much do you know about Aboriginal people? Well after a tour of Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection, you will want to know more. Each artist rendering tells a story to the history and traditions of Aboriginal life. The grounds are lovely. Pack a lunch, bring a blanket, sit for awhile. Tour, learn, purchase books, calendars to keep. This museum is a beautiful option to an open day of art and education.

The museum was built from private collections, and has some good items, though it is quite small; but a pleasure all the same.

This is the nation's largest / only (?) exhibit of Australian Aboriginal art. It's a wonderful free option while visiting Charlottesville and walkable if you are staying at the Hilton Garden Inn. I have been to Australia and spent time there enjoying Aboriginal art as well as starting a personal collection, so I had to temper expectations. The collection was lovely - just left me wishing we could expand it! Also featured educational areas.

The building was owned by Thomas Jefferson's father, and the setting is beautiful. The permanent collection, and the exhibition on Australian aboriginal art that we saw in September, were world-class

Wonderful collection of Aboriginal Art. I learned a lot about how the art was/is produced. It will make you want to go down under to see this art produced for yourself.
