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.

I was very pleased with the high quality selection of 19th century southern art pieces! For only $5 it really made my afternoon. I wouldn't recommend for youngsters but certainly for adults both young and old!

Just like with the History Museum, the Morris Museum appears to be a recent renovation. The interior had a brand-new look to it, with a design suggesting a mansion's halls. The art is logically organized along a maze starting from 1800's art to modern art....More

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.
