The museum is beautiful. But the stories, the pottery and the exhibits are something that must be seen to be appreciated. Plan for at least two hours.

Amazing building! The architecture was stunning, as well as the art. A little bit of something for everyone. Many different art styles, painting, pottery, photography, and more. There was a live class going on while we were visiting, the instructor seemed enthusiastic and helpful.

We hadn't been here for a while and told visiting family on a Sunday afternoon. Really glad we did. Great history of the folk art pottery of Northern Georgia and the predominant families of potters. Also reminds one of the cultural changes brought by war,...More
