Tallahassee, Florida

Architecturally stunning art museum designed by world-renown Moshe Safdie had to fight the zoning boards to get such a modern building erected on four blocks in old, historic, moss-draped Savannah. How delightful they won! Lots of light and space showcases contemporary art, rotating exhibits and beautiful community rooms. There is also a fun, hands children's area that is great. One of three sites in the Telfair Museum, and one ticket is good for entry to all three within a week.

The Jenson Center is a hard to miss building. It's big, it's white, and the front is mostly glass. The exhibits rotate in and out, so if you're here on a visit there's a good chance that there is something new. I will say that if you're going to go the the gallery, opt for the triple pass to all three Telfair Museums. It's only a few dollars more and allows you to go to the Owens-Thomas house and the Telfair Academy.

My wife and I dropped in here to see some local artwork. Much of the work by African American painters was quite striking and the view of downtown Savannah from the roof was pretty spectacular.

I cannot walk by The Jepson without it seducing me. In I go every time. Is it the contemporary architecture or the art?
If you have children in tow, you simply must go and prepare to spend some serious time in the kids'section. It could mould the way they think about art for the rest of their lives. And it is a super place to "do lunch." Nor do you have to pay the admission fee if you are just going to eat. And oh yes, their museum shop is a stellar place for artsy Savannah gifts, especially for children.

We really loved this small museum. It's just the right size to go and see the collections in a couple of hours. They have a cafe where you can eat and sit in the beautiful center of the museum that looks out on the square and the street. My aunt just became a member and apparently you get a discount at the cafe and the gift shop, as well as invitations to cocktail receptions when they open new collections. Membership was reasonable and cost effective. The staff was friendly and nice.
