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

This museum is sleepy and quiet, but it can be much better than large, crowded museums. The museum also has local art and chidren's art that rotates.

I grew up in Spfld and we spent spring break visiting family. When I was young, I had my artwork displayed in some of the yearly 'all school exhibitions' and knew my 10 y/o son would enjoy seeing other kid's artwork. Additionally, we love animals, so having Audubon's exhibit was a great draw. Since I was here many years ago,... More

If you like Art Museum you might enjoy this small museum. I wasn't impressed..but that is just me. I'm not a fan of art museums. There just wasn't much to see ..

This museum was wonderful to see. Took my granddaughter to see all the art. Didn't know about this place until I read reviews on here. I was glad that we got to go and see.

This looks like a little place in an odd location. I went there with my son and his girlfriend for the watercolor show. It was great and far more rooms than I thought would be packed in there.
