With three diverse buildings housing artwork ranging from classic to cutting-edge, Telfair Museums offers an incomparable visitor experience.
The museum’s three sites–two National Historic Landmarks and a contemporary Moshe Safdie-designed building–are located within easy walking distance of one other in Savannah’s vibrant historic district. A single admission fee allows you access to all three venues, and you may visit each at your leisure, over a weeklong period. You can admire original works of art by contemporary masters at the Jepson Center; be transported back to the nineteenth-century as you tour authentic period rooms at the Owens-Thomas House; or view stunning examples from our permanent collection at the Telfair Academy. And don’t miss the Telfair Museums Stores at the Jepson Center and Owens-Thomas House, where you’ll find unique gifts, jewelry, books and more!
Checkroom – Jepson Center
All bags are subject to security inspection before entering the Jepson Center Galleries. Telfair Museums requires visitors to check backpacks of any size, shopping bags, and bags 11 x 14 inches (28 x 35.5 cm) or larger. To avoid a lengthy wait in the checkroom line, visitors should not bring such items. The checkroom will not accept laptops or luggage of any size. The Telfair reserves the right to refuse other items and is not responsible for items held by the checkroom.
Telfair Academy and Jepson Center galleries and facilities are wheelchair accessible. Wheelchairs are available in the checkroom free of charge, upon availability. The Owens-Thomas House is not wheelchair accessible due to the historic nature of the site.
Sketching is permitted in the galleries (pencil only, no ink or paint) with sketchbooks no larger than 8 1/2 x 11 inches (21.6 x 27.9 cm). No easels, stools, or sketching while sitting on the floor is permitted. If galleries are crowded, guards may ask visitors to stop sketching or writing.
Food and Drink
Food and drinks are not permitted in the gallery spaces or in the Owens-Thomas House.
