The Morris Museum of Art, located on the Riverwalk in downtown Augusta, is home to a broad-based survey collection of Southern art. As a museum dedicated to exhibiting and exploring the art and artists of the South, the Morris is preserving and enhancing a cultural legacy.

The Morris Museum of Art was founded in 1985 and opened to the public in 1992. It is the oldest museum in the country that is devoted to the art and artists of the American South. The museum's permanent collection holds approximately five thousand works of art that date from the late-eighteenth century to the present.

The museum is housed in the Augusta Riverfront Center, a unique adaptation of office space to a museum setting. From the main entrance atop the Riverwalk, visitors enter an elegant lobby of classic design, and then proceed through a series of galleries showcasing an extensive collection of Southern art. The Museum's address is One 10th St., Augusta, GA 30901. Please see the Museum's website for hours and admission fees.
