    While not large, and while it leans toward modern art, this is worth the visit. There is a little something for everyone. Nice bit of culture and a respite from the ordinary in the middle of Buffalo. ...  more »

    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!

    Didn't know much about the museum before stopping in, and was quickly impressed. We spent about an hour walking through the exhibits and then another hour walking around outside. There is a parking lot onsite available to patrons with a $4 charge as long as you are going to the museum. I'm assuming the fee is to deter college students from parking there for class.

    Great collection of modern art. Museum had strong need for additional space. Not excited about the proposed addition, which obliterates the 1962 Gordon Bunschaft addition.

    We went into the gallery when we were at Rocking at the Knox, it was beautiful, clean, friendly. A great place to visit. 😊
