Museum visit

Great examples of neo modern art. Worth the visit. All art work has been donated, as well as the museum building.

This has always been a favorite with me. I like the simplicity of the white building and its galleries. I've been there many times and like that the exhibits aren't always the same. Barb, the staff on duty today, was extremely helpful and informative. She even gave us literature on the many programs there.

There is a great mix of history and art specific to Niagara University, as well as a great mix of local artists old and new. Great place to stop if you are near the Niagara Campus.

Free! Nice little museum. They have some great things in their permanent collection, and when we were there, they had a very interesting special exhibit by a contemporary paper artist

Darn ugly bldg. doesn't seem to fit into overall campus style, stark whitish marble. And interesting, sometimes odd stuff that is considered art.

The Castellani Museum is a small intimate art museum that offers new art on a regular basis. You do not have to fight crowds and the art is always interesting and thought provoking,

We stopped at the museum to see the Underground Railroad display. It was small but the video was very well done! The campus is beautiful!

Great gallery with a variety of art. I can't believe that i did not have to go to Spain to see a piece of art work from Salvador Dali.we had a difficult time trying to find the place but it was worth it.

A beautiful building with a wonderful collection of art; constantly in transition making it a place you would want to visit regularly because the exhibits are never the same. Girl Scouts were treated to a tour of the galleries and a lesson in how to create like Picasso. There was an exhibit of minitures with drawings even done on match... More
