  • Typical of a high quality university art museum the Harn's collection is broad but shallow. Some outstanding pieces and interesting temporary exhibits. Nice building is larger than it appears, and gal...  read more »

  • Spacious galleries, remarkable changing exhibits, and a broad permanent collection. Staff is friendly and helpful. It's a great outing solo, with family, or with a group. 
  • Some of the staff working at the museum reception, typically older white baby boomer generations aren't very friendly to anyone that doesn't look like them. Yes they're racists unfortunately like many of people in the city where passive animosity and racial attitudes are part of its culture despite its variety of downtown academic institutions. I was embarrassed to bring my family there who were visiting from NYC. The "modern" art museum, like its city, is pretty backward and lacks the culture of inclusiveness and the awareness of other more sophisticated cities and museums.
  • First of all, it's free admission. It's an impressive museum with a variety of historical artifacts and influential art. There is a beautiful Japanese water garden and also a Japanese rock garden. Such a great visit.
  • A little jewel of an art museum, with an unexpected and excellent collection. It's on the University campus, but on the SW side, so getting there and parking is easy. I can't believe there is no admission charge!
  • I wondered around this art museum for awhile alone one day. It was some of the best time spent that day for myself. Beautiful displays.
  • The museum is a beautiful place to lose yourself in some culture. I enjoy something new every time we go.
