Located on the campus of the University of Georgia, the museum is equal parts academic museum as it is the official art-focused museum for the entire state of Georgia. Here you’ll find many traveling exhibits of inspiring collections in a number of mediums, as well as a permanent collection of paintings that span over the 19th and 20th centuries. Spend an afternoon slowly perusing these impressive collections of American, European, and Asian works, Italian Renaissance paintings, and southern decorative arts—each unique in detail and bright in meaning. Though it’s located in Athens, the Museum of Art is reflective of the fascinating history of the entire state of Georgia and attracts visitors from all over the state and beyond.
