I like to visit the art museum in each city my husband and I visit. The facility was clean and well kept, although there was not much art for the size of the building. Each large gallery had 10-12 pieces, sometimes less. The largest room in the building was for children's elementary school work. I love the idea of showcasing... More

This free attraction is definitely worth a stop for any traveler that enjoys taking in cultural sights. There is a great deal of variety here: natural exhibits, artwork from the Renaissance onward, and art and antiquities from Asia and Europe. Even some of the modern art is actually worth seeing. There is definitely a good attribution of local and traveling... More

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!!
