The Museum is on the University of Oregon campus. The Museum was established in 1933 and is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums. UO Dean of Architecture and Allied Arts Ellis F. Lawrence designed the original building. The Museum was planned to house the Murray Warner Collection of Oriental art, which Gertrude Bass Warner donated to the university. The collection comprises over 3,700 works of art. In addition, the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art aims to showcase international cultures and educate visitors about the human condition, catering to a diverse and multigenerational audience by recognizing different learning styles. As the only academic Museum in Oregon accredited by the American Alliance of Museums, it is a must-visit for art enthusiasts and students.

This place is wonderful. I highly recommend everyone come here be they locals or visiting in from out of town. The staff - both student and permanent workers - all seem to enjoy their jobs, and were all incredibly warm, inviting, helpful, and generous in sharing their knowledge with my entire family (including my three kiddos!!!). I can’t say enough about how much I love having a museum like this here in Eugene.
I was very impressed with the quality of the exhibition and the friendly, knowledgeable docent who took the time to discuss the work of a featured artist with us. I discovered some new artists that have become some of my favorites. It's really a great museum and it far exceeded my expectations.
A great museum to visit, and admission is free if you’re a student! There’s a lot of modern art exhibits as well as several different Asian Art exhibits. We had a fun time coming here and it’s diffidently worth at least checking out if you can.
