We were also very impressed by the sculpture and painting galleries which included some of my favorite Impressionist artists. Lastly,my 83 year old mother was nervous about needing a wheelchair, but... More

But since it's a beautiful building with lots of great art, plus free, it makes sense it was busy. There was plenty of different types of exhibits that there should be something everyone would like.

The Chrysler Museum is one of my favorite museums among the museums I visit up and down the East Coast. As a resident of Washington,DC and a photographer at the Smithsonian Institution I have ample opportunities to view magnificent art and artifacts. The Chrysler simply is a splendid home to art, sculpture, glass and photography. The newly expanded glass galleries... More

The Chrisyler Museum of Art has recently been rennovated to become a world class gem right in the center of the city. The beautifully displayed art and sculpture if reflected with excellent new lighting. There is ample room to walk among the pieces on exhibit and not feel rushed or crowded. The exquisite glass section is worth the visit alone.... More

Had the pleasure of visiting the museum a couple weeks after the grand reopening and during the big duck. Watched a demo at the glass studio and toured the entire museum. The art collection was really enjoyable. Lots of variety. A little bit of everything.
