I need to start by saying I've never been to the big Art museums in NY. However I have been to some in Washington DC and Chicago and plenty of smaller ones throughout Michigan. So I finally get myself to go to my hometown one and what did I think? LAME They could do so much better. The 1st floor... More

Tuesday was their free day. Not much to see on our visit, but the staff was friendly. We enjoyed the american impressionist section. The second floor was not open as they were changing exhibits.

My kids and I first visited the art museum on a Tuesday, when entry is free. We enjoyed ourselves so thoroughly that we became members to be able to participate in all of their wonderful programs. There is something for everyone, including kids, just make sure that you check their calendar for the different events. Another plus is that they... More

The GRAM is a venue for Artprize so it is free to visit during Artprize. Not so exciting at other times.

Great Place to Go for a day to contemplate Design and Space. I was really into the Annie Albers' prints that I saw there. Also the Constellation Garden out side is great to walk around even when it isn't covered in ice in the winter.

This is a first class museum. They are always changing the venues to keep it interesting. You will find it easy to get around in a pleasant atmosphere. It is located perfectly in the center of Downtown Grand Rapids.

A building with a spacious sense, the Art Center was an excellent way to spend 3 hours. The Edward Burtynsky exhibit, especially, was a startling collection of large-scale photographs highlighting our association with nature. Particularly captivating were spectacular shots of India pit wells, various river deltas, and American desert-city areas. The photographs have a sense of lament, and a call... More
