The Art Museum is adjascent to the Natural History museum on the UF campus. The exhibits were unique and there was quite of variety of art forms. It's just the right size if you plan to visit other attractions in the area.

The Harn is a wonderful art museum in Gainesville with world class exhibits not to be missed. Too vast for a one afternoon visit. They have a Cafe that we did not visit on our stop. Will surely return.

It's located at University of Florida campus with onsite paid parking during weekdays. There are many amazing displays and certain displays dedicated to specific countries. It's both a leisurely and an educational experience.

It took us about two hours if your reading each plaque. Shorter if your just visually looking.
