  • This museum has hosted numerous revered artists from history: Van Gogh, Monet, Warhol, Degas, and so many more contemporary artists that I simply don't know of. Suffice to say, each new exhibition that opens requires yet another trip to the Harn. Free student admission is a plus!
  • 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.
  • Recent expansions (such as the wildflower garden and Japanese garden) make the museum a fuller experience. Many rotating exhibits are interesting.
  • 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.
  • 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!
