This art museum is surprising eclectic in the variety of artist's work on display. It is just the right size that someone using a walker or cane can make it though; plus there are places to sit and enjoy the art. I find that I quite like to sit and just look at a piece of art for a while.... More

I understand the purpose of security here, but he can lay off too. I think someone would notice if you walked out with a painting. Just let people walk through on their own without being hovered over like thieves.

If you are traveling or live near Augusta, Georgia, you need to spend some time at the Morris Museum of Art. Check ahead of time as they have a lot of thing going on during the year in addition to the current exhibits. For its size it is a wonderful place to visit.
