Go! Museum grows and changes every year. A true gift to the city from the Morris family. Offers excellent educational classes for all. More of an adult expedition but older children would also enjoy. Close to many excellent downtown restaurants. Ample parking.

Museum docents in character entertained our 4 year old as well as being informative to us adults. Beautiful works of art and very tastefully displayed. Family friendly art though some nude statues. Very friendly staff.

Beautiful building with an art gallery that extends over the past 200 years. While relatively small, it provides a good insight into southern art. Two areas are reserved for rotating art. Go on a Sunday when it is free!

The Morris museum displays southern artist or art with a southern theme. It is a very nice facility and the art is good, although I didn't see any really big name artists.

Regina is correct. I went to the Museum on a Sunday, and so it was free. I don't know what the regular rate is.
