Telfair Academy of Arts and Sciences, also known as Telfair Academy and Telfair Mansion, is a historic mansion in Savannah, Georgia. Originally a family townhouse, it became a free art museum in 1886 known as the Telfair Academy of Arts and Sciences. Its first director, elected in 1883, was artist Carl Ludwig Brandt, who spent winters in Savannah.[3]

It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1976.[2][4] The mansion is now the main facility of the Telfair Museum of Art, and features furnished period rooms that highlight the museum's collection of decorative arts.
