This is where my career began almost 50 years ago when I took art classes all summer. Went from there to become a designer and retired eventually. This has several shows during the year including one of the finest watercolor shows in the midwest. If you are in town and have even just one extra hour you should go. You... More

As an artist and designer, I like to see local arts venues when visiting different cities or towns. This has lots of varied art works and exhibits that contribute to the importance as an art center. I really enjoyed the ceramic and pottery exhibits,

This museum is small, but nice overall. They also offer classes if you're interested in that kind of thing.

Had a date day with my fiance and took him to the art museum. They have a pretty nice variety of different art available, and when we were there, they were setting up a new exhibit - nice to see that they change them up a bit to give you something new to see if you're a frequent visitor!

Really nice small-medium sized Art Museum. Super friendly staff and the nice little gift shop run by the museum association. The exhibits were surprisingly diverse. The place was slightly hard to find but that is not uncommon for most of the attractions in Springfield. You will eventually find it; and you will be glad you went.

This is a place I love going to .... exhibits change periodically and the variety is good even though I wish it was bigger. I always find something that impresses and moves me. I love being inspired by art!!

I'm always impressed with this museum. The water color exhibit is my favorite every year! The local art that they display is always good and I love the area that they have for children. I recently took my niece and nephew and thought they would be bored but they loved it!

We had to choose inside things to do because of the heat and both enjoy art so we figured "Why not?" Boy are we glad we went! Entrance is free which is a bonus, but they do accept donations which we left on the way out. The museum is not huge, but it did take us a little over an... More

I admit, I had no idea Springfield had an art museum. I was checking out the park next to it and went in on a whim. It's free, it's good good variety, and when I went in June of 2014 it had a juried water color competition on exhibit that had some lovely pieces. They also have some sketches by... More
