There were four exhibits open the day I was there - took less than an hour but definitely worth it. Most of the art was interesting and attractive. The real find is the gift shop which has real art for sale instead of mass-market tchotchkes. Prices were affordable and much more enjoyable to acquire a handmade art object or jewelry... More

From featured exhibits to the traditional, this museum is on the cutting edge. Compares to larger museums, but is laid out in bite size vignettes. Something for all tastes including a room just for children where "hands on" is encouraged.

My husband is not a museum visitor, but he's enjoyed our visits to this facility in recent months. It's not only lovely and conveniently located close to downtown, but offers diverse selection of exhibits to satisfy most people.

At the time of visiting the rotating exhibit was on Realism, and there was a central exhibit on crafting. The exhibits are well laid out and carefully annotated, with the only gripe being that many of the note plates are very small and a little tough to read. The space is light, airy and conducive to a couple of hours... More

This museum has evolved into a wonderful destination. We live in Fort Wayne and would like to say the director has done a great job of bringing this museum to the status it has achieved. We thoroughly enjoyed the special glass exhibit recently. Incredible talent!
