Fodor's Review

This contemporary building is one-of-a-kind among the characteristic 18th- and 19th-century architecture of historic Savannah. The modern art extension of the Telfair Museum of Art, the Jepson was designed by renowned architect Moshe Safdie. Within the marble-and-glass edifice are rotating exhibits, on loan and from the permanent collection, ranging from European masters to contemporary locals. There's also an outdoor sculpture terrace and an interactive, kid-friendly area on the third level called the ArtZeum.
