Admission is free on Thursdays from 4-8pm; they often have family events during this time as well which are great for kids. If you can get tickets, go to the Teddy Bear Breakfast. It is held annually the last weekend in November and is a fantastic family experience. However, tickets sell out every year, so you must plan in advance.

A real range of paintings and other artworks, a real variety and an impressive collection for a small gallery. Friendly, informative staff.

Wonderful small-town museum with many different types of art. The last visit, we had the pleasure of seeing Lego art. Very interesting and fun for the whole family. Nice gift shops with everything from art to keychains for sale. A little difficult to find, but very friendly people around town to help out. Near the old downtown Muskegon (which is... More

The front entry sets the tone for this small, yet remarkable museum! The permanent collection offers a sampling of fine works from different periods, such as portraits of Martin and Katharina Luther, Edward Hopper's New York Restaurant, MacMonnies' bronze Dianna, to Dale Chihuly's Cobalt Blue Persian Set with Cadmium Red Lip Wraps. The 87th Regional Exhibition featured an engaging array... More

The permanent exhibits here are okay - a small collection of art that's nice to look at. It's the temporary exhibits here that make it worth the trip and the price of admission. On our trip we saw a great exhibit of art made from Legos and another nice exhibit of "postcards" made by people of all ages, from an... More

If you like art at all, please stop by to see one of the best art collections in a small town ever! Always a treat to see what they have and this important museum. During WWll they were able to capture old pieces that were being flown in to this country for protection.

This is a small art museum with a good art collection. We came because of the special exhibit called "The Art of the Brick" by Lego artist Nathan Sawaya from New York City. 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
