  • World class museum, and an excellent one to have in one's hometown. There are always a couple special exhibits to see, and the museums collection is always being circulated so that something is new even if you go every month. Interesting outside sculpture, and the museum borders a lake of Delaware park which adds variety to a visit. Colorful accessible art appeals to all ages. The cafe is very good. Last night we attended a music and dance performance in the auditorium and I had forgotten how spectacular that can be as the sunsets through the floor to ceiling side walls.
  • Wonderful spread of styles. The perfect size for a quick afternoon trip. My wife and I spent about an hour and a half here feasting our eyes only on the pieces that piqued our interest. Shark Girl was the featured collection and was great!
  • A world class Art Gallery with a surprising collection of masters from early Impressionism to Current day. There is a regular schedule of touring and special exhibits as well. Not to be missed if visiting Buffalo or if you are a local artist needing some creative inspiration.
  • The Albright-Knox Art Gallery is an extremely impressive and picturesque building, with many sculptures found on its lawn. The Greco-Roman architecture with its columns and terraced steps makes it for sure a recognizable Buffalo landmark. Their collection is extensive and diverse which includes many different styles of art and sculpture. However, at any given time what is on display is extremely limited due to the small interior space. It is nearly impossible to spend more than two hours here, especially since the quality and size of exhibits varies greatly. Hopefully the upcoming expansion will change this, but currently it really isn't worth it to visit too often.
  • Great Modern Art Museum... A Tradition in Buffalo, NY. Fantastic exhibits and events - a True Cultural Gem in the Heart of The Queen City.
