  • I was in Rochester last weekend for the 2019 Clothesline Festival and I was not disappointed at all. The festival is huge! I had planned on attending both days setting aside a half day to tour this great institution. The festival was a lot of fun. There was food and music for all kinds of tastes. I bought a print from a New York State artist. The art gallery/museum is huge also. Plenty to see so plan accordingly. Someone was playing the huge pipe organ upstairs, probably trying to wake the mummies. There is a restaurant on location also a fine gift shop. Some of the artwork in the gallery is for sale so ask about it at the shop. Plenty of parking when the festival is not running. Memberships are also available which offers money saving benefits. The Memorial Art Gallery (MAG) is located on the University Of Rochester Campus on University Avenue, Rochester New York USA.
  • I really love this art gallery.they have courses you can take. And the art in the gallery is out standing. Great for kids and a date.again out standing they're is a restaurant to never been but here it's fabulous. A Must. Seriously.didn't take any photos. P.S. there is a park in back. Plus just walk the grounds to see the art on the grounds.
  • Had a Great day at the Memorial Art Gallery!! Always enjoy the book sale and the food trucks. Had the best grilled cheese with mac and cheese and pulled pork on it. All kinds of booths from jewelry, pottery, leather and puppets!
  • One of my favorite places to spend a couple spare hours! The staff is really welcoming and friendly, and this is a great place to go if you have a U of R ID (it's free!). They have great discounts for students from other institutions, too. It's in the middle of a great area of Rochester, so be sure to explore the restaurants nearby.
  • A great place to spend a day off! The Finger Lakes installment was one of my favorites but their permanent collection is also worth seeing! If you have a few days in Rochester, this should definitely be on your list of what to see.
