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.

There were only three main galleries and three special exhibit rooms (one of which was empty), but we spent a very nice hour-90 minutes enjoying and discussing the art. The staff was very friendly. Only a few other guests on a Sunday afternoon.

Free admission on Thursday and I saw a fabulous free movie ("Objectify" - about product design). The museum has a large quantity of art created by women and art created by African Americans. I so appreciate that they don't make a big fuss over either and let these extraordinary works speak for themselves. The collection of contemporary paintings is fantastic.... More

For a relatively small museum the work presented there was very nice. Great variety of work from contemporary to classical. We were there for an up and coming artist, Andrea Kowch's first museum exhibition and they treated the show with class and elegance. The work was hung in a great space and the lecture afterwards was informative. We applaud the... More
