Founded upon the legacy of UC Davis’ exceptional teaching and practice of the arts, the Manetti Shrem Museum offers engaging experiences and exhibitions that reflect and serve the community, now and for generations to come. The museum shares the university’s core values of innovative research, interdisciplinary experimentation, and a commitment to educational programming: One-third of the museum’s 50,000-square-foot space is devoted to instruction, including a 125-seat lecture hall, classroom space, and the drop-in Carol and Gerry Parker Art Studio, the only such wet materials studio within a university museum in North America. The museum has earned LEEDv3-NC Platinum status, and has won numerous awards for its distinctive architecture.

  • My girlfriend and I had a great experience here. Their most recent exhibit "young black and talented" features black artists and their exquisite work. The gallery features excellently curated art from artists of all walks of life. They offered a fun and interactive art creation experience where you can put your creative juices to good use!
  • Wonderful place to visit and explore on campus. As a student, I find myself searching for meaningful distractions all the time and I have enjoyed the museum as my home during those times. My only wish is that there be more interactive features for kids and adults since that seems to be an issue with people visiting (people keep trying to touch things even though that is prohibited). Love the staff and the atmosphere. Would go again.
