  • What a great place inside and out!! I have taken family photos outside with the art gallery as background and the photos came out amazing! I have seen couples use this place for wedding photos too. Inside there is up and downstairs filled with amazing visual delight!!! There is something for everyone, child to adult! The museum is free every first Friday and discount family day on Sunday.
  • One of the best art galleries of impressionist 60's and 70's paintings. Plus the design and layout of the building is amazing to boot. I love going through all of the art and taking it all in. Not an artsy fartsy critic, just enjoy good stuff that is here. Recommend to anyone who likes seeing big name art without the huge crowds or large gallery layouts. Will go back again and again, a gem in Buffalo, NY
  • Excellent gallery usually with a traveling exhibit. Took my nephew for company family day and even at one year old he loved it. Staff are very friendly. A must see if you're traveling from out of town.
  • The art was extremely modern. There were about 20-30 old art paintings, but those were nice. The staff was rude when asking questions about where the exhibits were. The only art I actually enjoyed the most was the ones for sale in the gift shop! Very dissapointing... Would not recommend
  • Great art collection at this museum. They are always rotating in pieces that you haven't seen in a while and they use the space beaurifully. Many famous pieces are always on display. Parking is easy and entrance fee is fair.
