With three diverse buildings housing artwork ranging from classic to cutting-edge, Telfair Museums offers an incomparable visitor experience.
The museum’s three sites-two National Historic Landmarks and a contemporary Moshe Safdie-designed building-are located within easy walking distance of one other in Savannah’s vibrant historic district. A single admission fee allows you access to all three venues, and you may visit each at your leisure, over a weeklong period. You can admire original works of art by contemporary masters such as Jasper Johns, Richard Avedon, and Frank Stella at the Jepson Center; be transported back to the nineteenth-century as you tour authentic period rooms at the Owens-Thomas House; or view stunning examples of American Impressionism at the Telfair Academy.
Stop in the Jepson Center’s Cafe Zeum, overlooking scenic Telfair Square, for a quick bite or leisurely lunch. And don’t miss the Telfair Museums Stores at the Jepson Center and Owens-Thomas House, where you’ll find unique gifts, jewelry, books, and more, for any occasion.
