“Underwhelming ”

Weatherspoon Art Museum
Ranked #19 of 53 things to do in Greensboro
Attraction details
Reviewed December 10, 2017 via mobile

They were installing a new exhibit downstairs, and so only the 4 galleries upstairs were on view. There was little art I enjoyed, and I really could have zipped through in 10 minutes without feeling I missed anything
Free!

The Weatherspoon is a small but lovely museum located right on the UNCG campus. Entrance is free and there's also free parking in an adjacent lot. Apparently, several of the exhibits rotate. When my friend and I visited, everything on display was contemporary. Some of it was thought-provoking, some of it was playful and some of it was worth sitting in front of and enjoying for a while. The staff members were friendly, well-informed and more than willing to answer questions and trade opinions. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Oh! And be sure not to miss the ceiling frieze in the main entry. It's wonderful!

This is a rare gem in Greensboro, and I highly recommend a visit. The staff is friendly, the galleries engaging and the facility easy to walk through. There are a variety of shows, mostly focusing on modern art.

I was really impressed that a city this size has this caliber museum. I loved it! It was the one 'free" day we had post game before returning home and this was a great afternoon activity. Impressive collection, highly recommend as an immersive experience

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, this is well worth your time.
