Beautiful museum with a small but interesting collection of modern art. My favorite in Miami. They have activities for children and it is a good family trip.

I took a group of students to the museum and we had a great experience. We had a guided tour in which we were exposed to art from all of the different periods. Our guide was able to really carry on a discussion with the kids and got them each involved. Definitely plan on going again.

My wife and I make it a habit to visit the most talked about museums in each major city we visit. I must say that the Lowe left me sort of bleh. It was OK. You know what I mean? Good collection and great range. Needs work to be world class.

No nearby handicap parking, staff were very unhelpful, totally put off by experience so we left without seeing the exhibits. We went instead to the nearby Coral Gable Museum which had a lovely modern art display as well as interesting history of the area.

This museum is on the campus of the Univ. of Miami. It supposedly has a large collection but it's interior area isn't that big. A bright spot is the collection of glass art. We have seen various works of glass art that are on the large size. These were human size and some were quite amazing. The galleries were so-so... More

We live in West Palm Beach, about 1 1/2 hours from the University of Miami campus, home to the Lowe Art Museum. We were particularly interested in a current, special exhibition by Stephen Knapp, an American artist best known as the creator of Lightpaintings. We had seen his work for sale at one of the major art shows in West... More

Well presented art and helpful staff. Collection is small with many of the works "attributed" or "school of..". But nonetheless very interesting. Note that unless one wants student food there is nowhere to eat nearby.

We enjoyed all the art on display. It's quite an eclectic collection, but no less interesting for that. The collection of glass pieces is particularly good.

This is an absolute gem of a small art gallery! I went primarily to view the paintings and was not disappointed. A small, but beautiful collection on display. Exhibits some delightful early religious art, as well as a small number of impressionist / post-impressionist through to more modern pieces. Further, there are some amazing collections of other art categorised by... More
