We weren't sure what we would find here, but for the steep price (it is FREE), we decided to check it out. We were very glad that we did. Several permanent exhibits are on display and there are galleries for visiting exhibits as well. We got to see a terrific photography exhibit. If you are interested in art at all,... More

This is a beautiful, but tiny museum. It claims an owned collection of 6000 pieces - you don't see them at all. We saw a few drawings in main lobby (like 15 maybe? we're great though, loved them, but nothing to replace them into context, who are the artists, why these pieces ?...). An impressive statue at the end of... More

A gorgeous carefully edited collection that will surprise you no matter how often you visit. It is carefully tucked away on UNCG campus with ample parking.

My husband and I visited the Weatherspoon while we were spending time in Greensboro with family. What a great little treasure! There were two displays of Matisse drawings that were so wonderful and interesting. The museum has great lighting, is so quiet and pleasant. We nearly had the whole place to ourselves.

Weatherspoon is part of the UNCG campus. Since it is part of the campus it is free to the public and often has "big name" exhibits. Parking can be questionable at times unless it is the weekend.

The visit to The Weatherspoon Art Museum was a real treat. We engaged in a 4 part series of self-taught artists spanning over different dates. A reception, tour and film were part of each series. The museum is on the outer perimeter of the University of North Carolina-Greensboro. Parking in the lot requires a pass and you must enter the... More

If you're looking for a museum that's small and easy to navigate, and not too difficult to find parking, here's your place.

Many locals do not know what a great art venue they have in the Weatherspoon gallery! The featured displays change regularly and local artists are included in this accessible art forum. The space is not huge, so you can spend some time looking and don't have to miss anything.
