AOL Travel Editor’s Review

The oldest public art museum in the South, the Telfair consists of three separate spaces. Telfair Academy, a 19th-century Regency-style building, houses 19th- and 20th-century American and European Art. The Owens-Thomas House, also in the Regency style, is a furnished house museum with a collection of 18th- and 19th-century decorative art. Don't miss the preserved slave quarters, which give a peek into the lives of urban African-American slaves of the period. The gleaming white tile Jepson Center, designed by renowned Canadian-Israeli architect Moshe Safdie, houses the museum's contemporary art collection. Highlights include works by Roy Lichtenstein, Frank Stella and Jeff Koons.
