  • Erie Art Museum offers classes, shows, films, children’s activities, a gift and coffee shop, framing services, a permanent collection and always a current offering. Every year there is a judged spring show. The location is so close to so many other Erie favorites too. Memberships fees are reasonable and pay for themselves with a few visits. A great place to bring out of town guests.
  • Visited The Erie Art Museum. Enjoyed the Daniel Burke: Callings--Six decades of art and education. This was a retrospective of the artists' work, who I was not familiar with, however, the art was curious and interesting. Our visit to the museum was brief, but we did take the opportunity to explore the "Art-O-Mat" machine. A $5.00 token placed into the slot in the front of a refurbished vintage cigarette machine presents you with a hand made art object created by an artist from somewhere in the world. I received a "folk art sculture". No visit to Erie, or anywhere, is complete without lunch! Molly Brannigan's pub has a great menu with stews and Guinness stout, potato dishes, fantastic burgers with flavorful fries! And chocolate peanut butter pie! I almost forgot the reason for the visit was to pick up paintings rejected from the spring show! Oh well, better luck next year!
  • Well curated, and a wonderful place to bring the family especially on Wednesdays when admission is free to all. The location is historic and fascinating with or without the displays for those who appreciate architecture. Also includes a "kids as curators" program that showcases work from area school children, and some interactive youth centered exibits that allow and encourage visitors to create and contribute.
  • A lot of beautiful artwork. I spent a couple of hours and didn’t even see half the pieces. I especially liked the collection of pieces from Eastern Asia
  • Everyone is nice inside the building it's great art Do note that you're not allowed to take photos inside the building
