This is a nice small museum at U of I Good quality works in all media worth visiting Temporary exhibits are worth the time and its just an enjoyable part of a big 10 university campus

The basement houses a collection of eygptian artifacts, greek pottery, artifacts from the time of Incas plus a whole lot more..The ground floor houses some nice early paintings and some contemporary art.

Many students are not aware of how great this gem of a museum is! I've been to great museums around the globe and this one has less (no) crowd (no wait) and is full of fantastic items. It's larger than you would think and so interesting. I encourage any student, local resident or faculty to visit - often.
