He is well known for his human figures made out of Lego bricks. There were also other items like a dress, a dog, an umbrella, and a... More

I just recently went to see Art of the Brick, best thing they have brought in so far. Amazing, but make sure your visit is uber random like me. It's free on Thursdays to go to the museum, unless there is a special event. I was rudely told by a volunteer or unhappy employee at 4:45 PM that it was... More

Last night (Thursdays are free after 5:00pm) we took two of our grandsons to see the Art of the Brick exhibit. This consisted of items made entirely from Lego blocks. There was everything from an umbrella to a dog, a dress, a person, clouds and skulls in four different colors. The boys thought it was great. And I must admit,... More

Our first visit here was a delight. The quality of the displays were beautiful. Always changing, many medias are covered. I stepped back to view a piece, and bumped into a Rodin sculpture! What a surprise. What a delight!

There is a ton of great Art. You would not expect such well exhibited Museum in a city the size of Muskegon. Come and you will be amazed.

This museum has a wide and varied collection of world famous art from the Master's to things you could see in the Guggenheim or Louvre. Extensive, beautiful glass collection. Traveling shows exhibits are wonderful. Gift shop offers usual items from jewelry to children's toys, always facinating finds are possible.

I'm prejudiced because I used to be a docent at the Muskegon Art Museum, but it's a real find. For a town the size of Muskegon the museum has art that would be at home in a city five times its size. There's a great diversity of works and a constantly changing exhibit so go often! And the museum shop... More

Beautiful fine art. Classes often available. Gift shop with many very unique items. (Formerly Hackley Art Gallery - one of the many things that lumber baron, Charles Hackley started in Muskegon.) Many awesome displays.

This is a small buy enjoyable art Museum. Only $5. Worth a stop if in the Muskegon area. The most famous painting is the Tornado Over Kansas by Jon Steuart Curry. Lots of interesting pieces. The museum has different exhibits. We enjoyed Buster Keaton's Bluffton. Bluffton is an area of Muskegon near lake Michigan. Free on Thursdays. Small gift shop,... More

Local and regional art show, special traveling exhibits, a highly regarded permanent collection , plus weekend activities for adults and kids most of the year. A great rainy day tourist stop or just a chance to get off the beach and out of the sun.
