  • A beautiful place to hold a conference. The staff were very accommodating for our needs. The rainbow church looking exhibit is stunning. You have to visit this place when you come head to the UT campus! Thank me later!
  • The Ellsworth Kelly Chapel is worth the visit. I enjoyed it even more than the Rothko Chapel in Houston. We parked on the garage for the Bullock Museum across the street, it was inexpensive and close.
  • I was not impressed. I felt the price of admission was a bit high for what you get to see or experience. Several displays were not available. There was also a guy painting in the hallway and every time the roller went up the wall it squeaked. I kept thinking, I paid money for this? The "American Road Trip" exhibit was not very interesting to me, I would even say it was boring. Overall, the social commentary being expressed through the art was a bit dark and depressing. I would not recommend this venue for a family outing.
  • I’ve been to the museum many times since I was a child, and each time I’m amazed by the beauty of the exhibits and the building itself. The staff are not only very polite, but they know so much about the art and the museum.
  • Great place to visit whether you are student or a tourist. They have discounts for students too!
