  • This small museum of art is a rare treasure in the heart of mid-America. There were a couple of areas closed, prepping for the coming exhibit, so we only viewed the permanent collection. I was shocked...  more »

  • Wonderful place to spend a few hours browsing different art. There are always unique exhibits to enjoy that you will not see in other museums in Kansas. The staff is helpful and friendly and always makes the visit enjoyable to see.
  • I just got to visit this University Museum for the first time and was impressed. The current show is called Temporal Turn: Art & Speculation in Contemporary Asia. The works were contemplative and beautiful. As well as on a scale I did not expect. Most were commissioned for this show. The permanent collection while close together and almost claustrophobic, boastsart by Georgia O'Keefe, Ansel Adams, Louis Jimenez, Andy Warhol and more, as well as works from long ago, and populist art. I could have spent several more hours exploring. If you have time stop by this unique and fascinating Museum. Parking is close by, but does cost. The museum itself is free.
  • Beautiful and newly redone. Wonderful staff that is always helpful. Right now they have a wide variety of styles on display, which is such a great way to re-open after all the renovations. They're also great in working with the University and students.
  • Very neat and interesting also can't be mad at the fact it is free
  • They had some really interesting displays. I will be going back to see how it updates.
