Welcome to the Morris Museum of Art!

The Morris Museum of Art, the oldest museum in the country dedicated to the art and artists of the American South, is the only art museum serving the Central Savannah River Area.

Located in historic downtown Augusta, Georgia, on the Savannah River, the Morris has preserved the history and culture of the South for more than twenty-five years. The museum’s permanent collection, dating from the late eighteenth century to the present, is arranged thematically in ten galleries. In addition, the museum hosts temporary special exhibitions throughout the year as well as  a rich array of public programs and events for children, families, and art lovers of all ages.

Tour, learn, and create at the Morris Museum of Art. There is always something new to see and experience.
