Telfair Museums is the oldest public art museum in the Southeast, Since the 1880s, the museum has grown from a renovated family mansion into a distinguished cultural institution located in three architecturally-significant buildings. The permanent collection includes approximately 4,000 works of art from America and Europe, dating primarily from the 18th-21st centuries.
Located in Savannah’s vibrant historic district, the museum consists of the Telfair Academy and the Owens-Thomas House, two circa 1820 National Historic Landmark buildings, and the Jepson Center. (See individual listings)
