Opened in 1886, after wealthy art collector Mary Telfair left her estate and belongings to the Georgia Society, this is the oldest art museum in Southern territory. Made up of three buildings, with very different, but equally fascinating architecture, the art and cultural artifacts inside are not the only jewels to see. The Telfair Academy has a neo-classical design and offers a glimpse into 19th century life. The Owens-Thomas House is a national historical landmark given to the museum in 1951. The newest 2006 Jepson Center offers a 64,000-sq. foot space, bringing modernism to the century-old museum. From art classes, to rotating and permanent collections, this museum offers visitors a chance to transport themselves in time. Visit the museum store on the way out, or even rent out space for a private party.
