  • It had interesting exhibits but I didn't like the way different genres were hung in one big room. It didn't seem organized.
  • I visited between major exhibits but a tour of items from their permanent collection was worthwhile.
  • Great works of art in a university setting. Love the staff, as well.
  • A great museum in the middle of the KU campus, a strong collection of works, great traveling installations (James Turrell) and just renovated.
  • Excited to visit once it reopens. It has always been a great place to enjoy art and culture while unwinding. Particularly for students during testing seasons.
