The way security at this museum follows people, stares, and hounds is ridiculous! It is impossible to enjoy or even give much thought about a piece of art when you are the only one in the gallery and the guards physically walk behind you and stand while you look. Seriously?? Do you think that I am going to rip the... More

We visited on Memorial Day weekend. We saw that the admission was reduced on the website, but we missed the explanation about the second floor being closed for renovations. So, if you are visiting in summer 2014, just note that you aren't going to get to see everything. We enjoyed what we did see and were glad that we went.... More

We spent two hours here recently. I think that is enough time. Add a few minutes to look at the excellent and well displayed gift shop. This shop looks more like a MET or Whitney Museum gift shop than a small town regional art museum gift shop. It is very good! The collection is very large (building has 95.000 sq... More

For a regional museum to have truly beautiful pieces - how rare! Don't miss the second floor 'modern wing' including the glass, wood and other mediums of art as well as the wing from the Rhodes Haverty collections. The 50th anniversary celebration exhibit includes masterworks from Delacroix, Dali, Matisse, Gainsborough, Copley, Sargent, Constable and J M W Turner. The Beaverbrook... More

We enjoyed the exhibition. Wonderful collection of French and British paintings. The Museum is newly renovated - lovely colors have been used for the walls.

It's the perfect place for if you're interested in knowing more about the city. It's right next to the Exploreum, which is a bit more kid friendly, but it's still a pretty neat place to go!
