Good Value with Some Interesting Art

It was free the day we went there and they had an interesting exhibit by a Brazilian artist who does "garbage art". The film was very interesting but too long. A lot of the space... read more

I visited the museum a couple of years ago and it was really nice. The art was nice. Its a smaller museum than in the big cities, but it has a lot to offer inside. It does have a cafe as well.

We were disappointed that the main gallery was closed for renovation/installation of a new exhibit. We enjoyed the smaller galleries. Check the website before you go to be sure the new exhibit is open.

It was free the day we went there and they had an interesting exhibit by a Brazilian artist who does "garbage art". The film was very interesting but too long. A lot of the space was vacant but we enjoyed what they had. All of the art was modern but not overly abstract.

Great place to visit if you're looking to do something. Word of advice to whoever is running it... Please stop fluctuating your need to charge people. We have been back and forth being asked for admission and bring told its free. Some exhibits are blocked unless you pay... Ive seen the artwork previously, so if i do pay it should... More

This museum is a must-do in Roanoke. The galleries are set up to tell a story. The fact the the museum is free is absolutely amazing. Don't forget to see the Judith Leiber collection!

The Taubman Museum of Art itself is an architectural masterpiece - best appreciated from another taller building like Center in the Square's rooftop! So unique and creative - how the building captures the features of our valley - both the mountains and the train engine angles! The American Art exhibits are tributes to the artists AND the generous donors to... More

Interesting museum with changing exhibits. My wife and I have visited several times since moving to Roanoke and have always enjoyed ourselves. We especially enjoyed the wonderful civil rights photography exhibit we viewed a couple months ago but each trip has been rewarding. The building itself is quite controversial as many locals feel that it's design doesn't fit in with... More

My wife & I stopped here while passing through Roanoke. The museum has free admission, all we had to pay for was $4 for parking across the street. I just don't think they utilize the space very well here. There wasn't much downstairs other then a small gift shop which wasn't really organized & a children's workshop that looked pretty... More

The most stunning pieces of traditional art they have are a John Singer Sargent and a Childe Hassam. Most of the work is contemporary, which I am not a fan of. I did enjoy the exhibit of Japanese prints they had though. The gift shop is very limited. The building itself is stunning.

I spent a delightful two hours at the museum with my daughter and granddaughter. We found the museum had a diverse collection of art. We especially enjoyed the Judith Leiber collection of crystal encrusted handbags, each one unique and stunning. The design of the building gives an open, airy, inviting feeling that compliments the art.
