  • I really enjoy this museum. First, the building itself is beautiful. I have attended many of their special exhibitions (Dale Chihuly 2001, Norman Rockwell in 2012, and Ravaged Sublime in 2016)and have always been impressed. This museum is much smaller than the Cincinnati Art Museum, but they have excellent special exhibits. Additionally, I have attended their Oktoberfest in the past and found that their special events are very well put together. In additional to their art galleries, they have lovely outdoor spaces as well and incorporate the artwork in their courtyard and on the lawn of the museum. Their top level is separated into European and American wings. They go through the time line of each region's artwork and have traditional artwork as well as furniture and sculpture. Thumbs up!
  • Such a cool gallery, remarkable historic building. Prices very fair, exhibitions unique and frequently rotated. They have evening events very often including theater and jazz night! Check them out!
  • I loved coming here! We were able to bring our service dog and we enjoyed seeing most of the museum! The staff were informative and the exhibits were beautiful and had lots of variety. College students get in for free!
  • Beautiful art museum with great prices on admission! The place is huge and there are often only a few people so the place is spacious and quiet
  • There is a large display a very fine paintings. They are is art glass. And the snack bar looked really interesting.
