Ackland Art Museum, Chapel Hill Reviews

  • Interesting shows, and we have been lucky to hear docents leading discussions on different pieces. They are very knowledgeable and bring a greater depth of understanding. The staff are welcoming and helpful. A great experience for an unbeatable price, free.

  • Interesting place. We stopped in while touring the campus to beat the heat for a bit. They really have quite an eclectic collection. Stop in and give the place a turn - worthwhile.

  • I felt a dearth of space while visiting this museum. An "art lab" kind of area is right in the middle of a gallery, which I would imagine any activity that's going on there could well distract visitors from enjoying the art. The Africa gallery is tiny, and so is the "common space" around the information desk. There are also very few interpretive labels. Object guides are provided for more in-depth information, which I'm fine with but most people will neglect. All that being said, Ackland is still well worth visiting if you're in the area - it's free and the Asian collection is very good. You'll also discover a few big names in its galleries of oil paintings.

  • Small friendly museum. Minor paintings and artifacts. Lovely people working there. Haven't come from New York this was a very minor Museum to visit but still very pleasant. That's why I gave it three stars because even though it wasn't up to the standards that you'd find a New York it was still Pleasant to go visit.

  • This museum has some truly world-class pieces of Art! This is a true treasure in the city of Chapel Hill! 5000 years of human history before your eyes, to see things like this sends a chill up your spine, and leaves you humbled, for the art is so elegant in its brevity. This is an absolute must-see for anyone who lives in the city! I love it!!! And make sure you check out the awesome gift shop!!! ☺️🎨🖌️
