The museum had Ansel Adams Masterworks Exhibit on display during our visit so I felt it was well worth our time. I had the impression there are no permanent exhibits in this small museum. So you probably want to decide whether or not to go to the museum based on the current exhibit. Much of the facility is an event... More

I loved the pictures and enjoyed the movie. I'm a huge fan of Ansel Adams. The movie is a must see. I was very touched!!

Loved the work displayed. Really couldn't believe the crumbling & decaying building was shown in such condition. There were also no artist individual postcards to purchase.

It's a good place to visit for people who love culture and art and to learn something new.I'm ashamed to say that I didn't know about Ansel Adams before this exhibition.But it inspired us to see Monument Valley that we saw in his pictures and to buy a picture for our house:)

Saw the Ansel Adams photo exhibit. That was all there was. Just about 50 or so photos in a somewhat run down building. Nothing other than the photos and a movie about Adams. Thought there might actually be a few paintings but no.

The Ansell Adams Masterworks exhibition is excellent. The docent was super friendly and sweet. Enjoyed meeting the winner of the local competition held in conjunction with the exhibit, delightful lady. The photography curator was friendly and enjoyable. Only one unpleasant kind of hateful woman, appeared not to enjoy her job. Pleasant afternoon for the most part. Unlike a lot of... More

We didn't even realize that there was an art museum in Arlington. We thoroughly enjoyed viewing the photographs of Ansel Adams!! It makes us want to visit Yosemite soon! There were also photos upstairs from a recent local completion. We just wish that there had been a card explaining something about the photographs. After speaking with a gentleman who works... More

Visited "Artists in Motion" in February with paintings & sketches from Houston artist Donray. Very beautiful artwork, really shows the motion of dance movement. Costumes on loan from Texas Ballet Theater are beautiful, and you can get up close & personal with them. Very good exhibit of ballet & art. They were placed on 4 floors of the art museum,... More

I was amazed to find a Smithsonian exhibit in Arlington. The William H Johnson exhibit was fantastic and paired with a Harlem Renaissance collection. I always check out their website to see what exhibitions they have when I'm in town.

I attended the museum and saw the exhibit about women's baseball. I enjoyed the exhibit, but before I went in, I thought that it was a special exhibit to go along with the museum's permanent exhibits. Much to my surprise, that was the ONLY exhibit in the museum. For $8, I expected to see a lot more.
