I will say they were closing soon for renovation so with the changes it might make a better excursion. I also think they might have put away some of their permanent collection.

Was disappointed by the limited number of exhibits and size of the museum. For a town that is chock full of wonderful art it was a let down.

Exhibits were being replaced so not everything was available. Had some unusual exhibits. Inexpensive.

Made a stop by the art museum to check it out. Nice folks. Not a lot of exhibits. I enjoyed the Woolworth Gallery much more.

Interesting downtown museum. A modest but well presented collection. They have plenty of programs to engage the community, such as films and discussions with curators. Well worth a visit.

Asheville is known for its art scene, and it has a great museum to show for it. Not to be missed exploration of local talent, with a great museum shop to boot.

This was a really small museum. It was undergoing renovation when we were there, so less art, but staff were very friendly and helpful.

Enjoyed visiting this museum with son who was visiting from Chicago. A painting by my friend, the painter Bill Scott was featured in an exhibit. It's a smallish art museum featuring excellent exhibits of contemporary art. The best thing about Asheville is its tradition as...More
