Pretty disappointing, not worth ten bucks to see so few works of art- and so few "interesting" works (though I recognize that's a mater of taste, of course). And, here's the most annoying thing… I've never seen so many security guards per square foot, and they are looking over your shoulder every second. It's just creepy, and detracts from the... More

Disappointing museum. The Norton museum in West Palm Beach is a far superior place to visit, with a wonderful permanent collection.

Located in a beautiful neighborhood downtown. It's a small venue when you think museum, but they pack in a lot. Cost $10. Seniors $7. They have a modern art and a international art collection (more to my taste). The current exhibition: "All in the family: Paintings & Works on paper by Glackens family"

Hard to call a place where there are so few art works a museum, but it was enjoyable to see. Essentially there were only 2 exhibits open on the day we visited, but there was definitely enough to see in a short trip. Disappointed that the museum shop did not have any magnets that had the name of the museum... More

Large modern art collection and excellent permanent collection. Fun to stroll through and see the different styles and artists. Located on Las Olas so close to the riverfront and a nice walk on Las Olas to other small galleries and restaurants

Has always been a delight to visit the museum, the curators do a good job of brining national and international art to our city and keeping it interesting and relevant. Thank you.

If you are not familiar with Ashcan 8 they were artist that brought American art to the world back in the late 1800s early 1900s. William Glackens was one of them and his art is well displayed here and worth seeing it is one of the larger collections on display in the country

This museum offers one of the largest collections of CoBrA art in the USA, along with the largest collection of William Glackens works of art. Truly a beautiful building designed by the renown architect Edward Larabee Barnes.

Wonderful facility. It is a bit smaller than other museums if you've been to Washington D.C. or New York. But it's great for the size that it is. They host wonderful showcases sometimes, Bodies and Mummies were great.

OK--- it's small. And it has the largest CoBrA collection of mid century are in the country. Mostly you'll see traveling shows, or art from local collections. Membership is the way to go here if you visit a couple times a year. Or pay the $18 and enjoy an hour or so wandering through it's two floors. Nice cafe outside... More
