Georgia Museum of Art
Athens, GA 30602
The Georgia Museum of Art (GMOA) has long offered its audiences a world-class art experience. As both an academic museum and the state's official art museum, it serves not only the University of Georgia, but also the owners of its permanent collection, the residents of Georgia and the state's visitors, through award-winning exhibitions, publications and programming. The GMOA houses a permanent collection of more than 9,000 works of art, as well as a variety of traveling exhibitions and a new sculpture garden.
Gallery tour groups are welcomed, and educational tour groups on a variety of topics are available upon request. GMOA also offers its ongoing "Tour at Two," with a tour each Wednesday at 2 p.m., as well as Family Days once every month on a designated Saturday morning. Families and children may check out a free backpack full of supplies and activities that will enhance their walk through the GMOA.
Admission to the museum is free, with a suggested donation of $3.
