“A Gem for DeLand”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2013

I always enjoyed visiting the museum but still preferred the original name which was the DeLand Museum of Art. A good mix of exhibits and classes makes you feel like they are doing their part to groom the next generation of artists. I have taken several art classes and participated in the exhibits and have always been pleased with the experience. The facilities are exceptional and the people are very helpful. My favorite event is the open art shows where anyone can enter.

Nice stop at a small museum. Some Florida art mixed with others. OK for 5 bucks. Nice modern lay out. Staff was friendly.

“Small - room to grow”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2012

This museum has room to grow. Some shows are great, and others you wonder why they bothered. They do host some fun events, so keep an eye on it for those times. Otherwise, might be better to go to one of our bigger museums.
