  • Went for the first time with a member and had a wonderful lunch at the cafe and then walked that lunch off in the museum. I'd consider getting a membership just for that

  • But……. There was a security guard dressed in a kilt, long hair in a pony tail and heavy work boots. My husband and I (in our late 60’s ) simply wanted to enjoy the art but we felt very uncomfortable....  more

  • We spent some time experiencing the museum's collections and had lunch at the Café (delicious!) before our main purpose of being there, which was touring the 2 Frank Lloyd Wright designed homes the museum owns. The home tours were fantastic, with very knowledgeable and personable docents. We would like to go back and spend more time at the museum itself. We highly recommend the museum, the cafe' and the home tours.
  • Fantastic local museum in a beautiful facility. The staff is very friendly and unobtrusive. The works on display are unique and they have a nice cafe if you need to take a break between exhibition halls. Definitely recommend if you are in Manchester.
  • Relaxing. Quiet. Enjoyable. Interesting. Thesaurus. Words. Oops 😬! A mixture of modern and what would be considered classic art from mainly Europe 🌍 and the US, including sculptures and furniture available for close up viewing. A few of the pieces, such as the Van Gogh, have a rope in front with a motion detector, but you can get up close to study the pieces. There are benches and a few chairs to sit and observe the 🎨 paintings. I had a brief tour with one guide and learned of the history of the museum. I learned of a free admission Saturday that happens each month from the Hippo 🦛 Press newspaper 📰. There is a small Andy Warhol exhibit which is mostly videos he took of people looking into the camera for several minutes. Celebrities such as Bob Dylan and Lou Reed are shown. This exhibit had been at the museum 🖼️ for about 10 years. There is a restaurant/cafe available. Elevator for the disabled. Gift shop as well. If you enjoy art 🎨, check it out!
  • "Art After Work" is Brilliant! Hopped in last Thursday between 5 and 8pm, for the free "Art After Work" event; and the gentle folksy music was the perfect way to end the day... There's Sangria in the Winter Garden Cafe, and the Museum is open for strolling during the show. Wonderful and Relaxing. Will definitely be back for another one, the next time I'm in Manchester.
  • An amazing museum, though compact, has a lot of variety. You'll find some nice European art, as well as American art, including several paintings from the Hudson Valley school. There's some nice modern and contemporary art, as well. The American crafts are nice, as well.
