Quick Review: Small gem of an art museum.
The Zanesville Museum of Art is a small muesum, well compared to the big city museums in the state. What it might lack in size is makes up in dedicated staff, volunteers, and quality of collection. The museum does have a small fee but the fee is waviered if you are a museum member or kid under 9 and discounted if you are a senior or AAA member. The museum currently is open Wednesday through Saturday, with late hours on Thursday. The museum also offers art classes and tours. The museum is laid out in a easy to manage pattern, not something all museums can claim.
The museum houses many great works of pottery. One would be very disapointed if the museum did not, since Zanesville is know for its pottery. The pottery has many great information included with it. The pottery is beautiful to look at not something you see so much of at some museums. The pottery would be the highlight of the museum.
The museum has many large pieces that are great to look at. The international art work is very interesting. There are many colorful pieces in that section.
There is also a section dedicated to dolls. This is a popular section for kids one would imagine. Adults would love to also look over the dolls to spot all the different kinds.
