Ackland Art Museum, Chapel Hill Reviews - Write a Review

  • Small but beautiful art musuem. Personally, I love the room with the drawings and paintings. Outside I love the little stick houses, me and my sister like to play in them. :)

  • The art starts outside with wicker animals (woven twigs). This art museum is free and absolutely beautiful. It is surprising how many high quality pieces are presented. There are works by Picasso, Pissarro, Miro, Klee, Corot, Courbet. Medieval art, Roman, Greek, all the way to the 20th Century. Until January, they have a special exhibit on a Japan war in the 19th Century.

  • Staff was very friendly. Went as a 3rd grade field trip and the kids seemed to enjoy it as much as I did...

  • Nice little museum. Diverse collection. Free admission.

  • Helpful staff. Great permanent collection. Diverse visiting collections. Check out the Calendar of events.
