Jordan Schnitzer Museum Of Art Reviews & Ratings
This place is located in a historical building on a beautiful campus. Its Asian collection is excellent, and there is a good number of rotating exhibitions. So why only three stars? I really feel the museum's interior needs to be refurbished. Natural light rarely penetrates into the galleries. Artificial lighting is not much better either, with some dimly lit spots. Glass is highly reflective. All these make up a less enjoyable visiting experience. But still, I would recommend giving it a try if you are in the area. The collection alone is well worth the very affordable admission fee.
There is a lot of incredibly cool art here. You wouldn't think a small town like Eugene could build up a museum like this, but they did. Definitely worth a visit. Some cool places nearby to grab a bite are an extra plus.
The time went by too fast. It was interesting and relaxing!
Call ahead if you want/need to go. They are almost never open for all of their business hours. Exhibits are fine, but not worth paying for so if you aren’t a student don’t bother.
A beautiful museum in a great location. A fantastic exhibit on Chinese and Japanese artwork. New modern exhibits every few months. Cafe inside with courtyard as well.
