Opened in 1958, the Ackland Art Museum is considered one of the state?s most important art museums. It currently houses over 16,000 works of art such as prints, drawings, and photographs. The museum has collections of European, Asian, and African arts as well as North Carolina pottery.

The museum regularly holds gallery lessons for the university and local community as well as faculty and student research projects.
