The museum offers a surprisingly comprehensive presentation of the history and culture of the region and the building itself is a gem. The galleries are well arranged with thematic progressions through historic and cultural developments. While the layout promotes a stroll through history that can...More

I guess with all the attention to Madison I expected a lot more especially after having done some of the antebellum trail in Louisiana. If you are in the area worth a stop but not as a destinstion in my opinion very dissappointed.

I didn't find this place listed among the must-sees, but it should be. Lovely art exhibition, as well as a beautifully restored theater, school room, & (my favorite) parlor from Boxwood House. Story relating the parlor to Gone with the Wind was fun.

Beautiful building with a great history and overview of Madison. Nice exhibits, that change on a regular basis, and a gift shop that provides very nice souvenirs. Well worth a couple hours, and you get to ring the old school bell in the belfry!!

This regional arts center and museum fits beautifully into the town's carefully-restored former graded-school building. If you are lucky enough to be in town during a performance, do try and get tickets for the auditorium. Otherwise simply enjoy this cool building and it's grounds; browse...More

This beautiful building has been restored nicely. The exhibits fill in some knowledge gaps for visitors who aren't familiar with small town Georgia. I discovered they had just concluded a storytelling weekend, so I've already made plans to attend next year.

The cultural center was hosting a story teller's weekend, full of laughs and old family secrets to share, when we visited. The location is super convenient, a short walk to shops and restaurants. Strolling through historic Madison offers close up views of Antebellum homes, bringing...More
