This is one Tallahassee's best kept secrets in the Florida State University campus area. There are rotating art events, sometimes with local or student artists, or even nationally recognized artists. The most recent exhibit featured the largest Cuban art exhibit in the United States in the past few decades. This is both family friendly and free.

An architecturally beautiful space. The staff is really nice and welcoming. They will give you great advice on FSU and Tallahassee. FSU student curated exhibits are an insight into the deep-thinking and ultimately up-lifting goals and ideas of our future leaders. You can learn a lot here. You should check this out.

Definitely worth a visit if you enjoy museums. World War II through the eyes of the participants was the special exhibition at the time of our visit. Well arranged; very informative explanations and commentary with the displays. Nice location on campus.

The FSU University Museum of Fine Arts should be on anyone's list when visiting Tallahassee or if you live there. It is a full museum with a permanent collection and a changing schedule of exhibitions. Exhibits are on both the street level floor and one level below. You might be able to get a guide if you plan ahead and... More

This museum sometimes has great temporary exhibits. As a lover of fine art, and former art school student, I highly recommend visiting this place to feel enriched. Check online or in paper for the current exhibit before you go. You probably won't see a lot of advertisement. It is rare that I hear about exhibits at this museum. I think... More

if you are on the campus, a stop at the art museum can be worthwhile – obviously the quality of the visit will much depend on the art currently being exhibited.

Temporary exhibit boasts a large private Rembrandt collection. Very worthwhile. Lighting could've been adjusted in portions of the exhibit. Nice Peruvian exhibit too

Not sure what their permanent collection is like, as only a few items (on the staircases and corridors) are shown. We saw three different temporary exhibitions here, with a mixture of classical (prints) and contemporary paintings and sculptures. This is obviously an institution that takes its mission as an arts faculty seriously.
