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!

The museum is small but is had some nice exhibits. We were there during the glass exhibit which was beautiful but did cost an additional $5.00 per person to see. They offer free parking in back of the museum.

They now charge you to visit on SUNDAYS ONLY which is usually the only day we can visit the museum. 20.00 to get in and then another 25.00 to see the summer of glass exhibit which was not that great. There were around 20-22... More

The Chihuly blown glass exhibit is in Fort Wayne until the end of September. The museum as a whole is very clean, neat and interesting art exhibits. I will be taking a membership there to support them.

I visited the museum on a Sunday, and general admission was free. There was a glass exhibit available for $7. I did not view that exhibit, so my review does not include that. The "museum" consists of 5 rooms, 2 of which were given to a photographic exhibit about natural hair, specifically the Afro. This exhibit was interesting, thought provoking,... More
