We wandered into the museum out of curiosity and were pleasantly surprised at both the elegance of the place as well as the inventory of the art on display for a small art museum.

I visited on a weekday afternoon, and the Morris Gallery was basically a private showing. Very graciously arranged galleries and set up. Fine gift shop, with many of their paintings available on post and note cards at reasonable prices. The collection is primarily dedicated to...More

What a pleasant surprise to find this gem in Augusta! The collection is built around artists from the South and it opens ones eyes to some pretty good paintings.

The Morris is a wonderful way to discover distinctly Southern art. It is located downtown, on the Riverwalk. Parking is free. Sunday's are free. I enjoyed the way things are set up. You start by experiencing art and artifacts of the 18th century South, then...More

For Augusta, a nice start. No, it isn't the High Museum, and never will be. But some interesting, worth seeing exhibits do pass through, and some permanent loan items are certainly a step of for a mid size Southern city.

The art museum is small but interesting. On Sunday afternoon at 2 pm there are free events which include concerts, lecture, and different interesting activities for families, couples, individuals. Well worth a visit.

This is a wonderful small art museum. A true gem in downtown Augusta. Good civil war art. They offer guided and unguided tours with trained docents.

It's worth the visit just to see this beautiful building with detailed architecture inside. The art is mainly from southern artists and so nicely displayed. It's easy to meander from room to room and then return to view favorites. The docent was so informative. If...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.
