This is a wonderful art museum on the campus of Skidmore College. They have several different art exhibitions, so you will never get tried of going there. They art work is sometimes very contemporary; but it is good to see different types of art work.

Always look forward to a visit. Their exhibitions are unusual, thought-provoking, fun. Even the elevator has installations. Take a curator's tour when they have them. Great gift shop too-love their jewelry.

We only had a chance to see one small exhibit because the staff was in the middle of prepping the next big exhibition. However, we were warmly welcomed in to see what we could see and we were fortunate enough to run into an art department professor who gave us a wonderful history and background on this up and coming...

This museum always has different installations and is always awesome. I lived in the area my whole life and never went until a few years ago. I was looking for a place to take my step-son because he was sick of the Empire State Museum but he loves museums. We took him here and he had a blast! I was... More

I visited during the exhibition of their students work and was blown away by the quality shown. The work was very varied and interesting and I must congratulate the students on a job well done.

I recently visited the Tang Museum while I was on a date before dinner. It was actually a lot of fun and had some really unique art. It was kind of small but it is part of Skidmore College and overall very cool. I will definitely be checking more out at Tang!
