Preservation Fee
A facilities preservation fee of $1 will be added to all admission prices. This donation supports the care and preservation of our three architecturally significant buildings, including two on the National Register of Historic Places and the contemporary Jepson Center for the Arts by world-renowned architect Moshe Safdie.


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.

Mobility Access
All galleries and facilities are wheelchair accessible. Wheelchairs are available in the checkroom free of charge, upon availability. Click here for or more information on Jepson Center accessibility »
