This art museum had lots of fun, interactive exhibits. Great for the whole family. The
Radiance exhibit was great.

We wanted to see the bird girl, which was our reason for buying tickets to the Telfair Museums. The displays at the Jepson Center were awesome. But we were especially enthralled by the bird girl....several years ago, we bought a replica at the Book Gift Shop (now closed) and we have it prominently displayed in our yard. To see the original "up close and personal" was a thrill of a lifetime. The entire Jepson is worth a visit. We will surely go back again....and again.

Love to see what the artist of today have to say. Great experience. When combined with the other two museums it gives a good history of the art and people of Savannah.

Was a nice way to spend a rainy day. Exhibits are varied and well staged. Because I had just visited the Bonaventure Cemetery, I enjoyed spending a lot of time with those displays. The Bird Girl Statue was also a "must" photo for me. I would go back again.

Clearly not your grandparents' art museum (if you want that experience go to the one across the street...which is nice too). My kids loved this place. A lot of hands-on VR art as well as an art and crafts room where we were able to show off our talents too. I think the reviews on this site don't do this place justice. While I would rather be outside and enjoying beautiful Savannah, on a rainy day this place was perfect! Very cool.

I think my favorite part was on the 2nd floor where they had this huge 3D art piece you can walk around and through. Depending on where you stopped and looked and how the light was, you got a totally new piece of art to enjoy.

A very unique experience!
