Ackland Art Museum

Featuring a year-round calendar of special exhibitions and engaging public programs, the Ackland Art Museum encourages visitors to engage with the rich legacy of the artistic past as well as with living artists from around the world. A universal collection of artworks from antiquity to present makes the Ackland uniquely able to advance the University’s teaching and research missions. The Ackland Art Museum is considered one of the state's most important art museums. It currently houses over 16,000 works of art such as prints, drawings, and photographs. The museum has collections of European, Asian, and African arts as well as North Carolina pottery. Funding for the museum originally came from a bequest left by William Hayes Ackland when the philanthropist noticed the lack of museums in the area. Visit ackland.org for hours of operation.
