Since 1958, The Ackland Art Museum has been one of North Carolina’s most important cultural resources.
The Ackland Art Museum is an academic unit of The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and serves broad local, state, and national constituencies.
The Museum’s permanent collection consists of more than 17,000 works of art, featuring North Carolina’s premier collections of Asian art and works of art on paper (drawings, prints, and photographs), as well as significant collections of European masterworks, twentieth-century and contemporary art, African art, and North Carolina pottery. The Ackland organizes more than a dozen special exhibitions a year.
The Ackland is located on S. Columbia Street, near the Franklin Street intersection in downtown Chapel Hill. Click for directions and parking.
