Educational programming takes place in the 220-seat auditorium, community gallery, education studios, and ArtZeum—a unique, 3,500-square foot interactive gallery for children and families.

This amazing building would be worth the price of admission alone, but it is chock full of beautiful exhibits thoughtfully presented. We loved the children's section that shared the joy of architecture. There was a whole section of electronic art which was fascinating. One gallery...More

I would recommend this museum to other tourists. The special exhibits at the time of our visits, William Wegman and Kahlil Gibran, were well done. More space geared to children than in most small art museums.

Great place to stroll around on a hot afternoon and relish the history of Savannah. Gift shop is really nice as well, and has lots of Bird Girl Statue items for sale!

Thanks for your comments. We think all 3 Telfair Museums sites are great rainy day places to visit...and great to see on sunny days too!

We really enjoyed the galleries and interactive play areas. We we disappointed that we're forced to pay 20 bucks per person and bundled into having to see all 3 centers. Telfair Museum, Academy and Owens House. It should be cheaper to see just the one....More

We would have come anyway but going past on the trolly bus we spied the Bird Girl from the MGGE so had to see her and were relieved that we hadn't traipsed out to the cemetery looking for her! Why this isn't advertised better is...More

One ticket got us into the Owens-Thomas House, the Telfair Museum, and the Jepson Center. All were well worth the price. There were several galleries to walk through with a large variety of art styles and mediums represented. I especially liked the Wegman exhibit. He...More

This is a modern looking museum. The original Bird Lady is here and worth it to see the original. If you buy tickets, the price also includes the Owens-Thomas House and Telfair Academy so it is worth it.

As Brits we were not familiar with much of the work on display and it was great to be introduced to some new artists. Good diverse range of contemporary work. Not an overwhelming amount and grouped in a helpful selection of galleries.
