Very contemporary building in a traditional downtown space -- beautiful views from the top floor. A lovely selection of permanent collection works were on view, along with several smaller exhibitions ranging from Judith Leiber handbags to contemporary photography. Very pleasant outdoor cafe space. Convenient to al the shops and restaurants in the market area. Free admission.

The Taubman Museum of Art is worth a visit if you are in downtown Roanoke. It isn't a large collection but we really enjoyed our visit there. It's free and a great way to stroll away an hour. Apparently there is a balcony on the 3rd floor with great views over Roanoke, but it was closed for a private function... More

Small collection of art work and free admission. Worth stopping by for a brief time if in town. Very close to City Market and Hotel Roanoke. Rim with the American Art collection is nice.

Big spacious and airy. But the art was only ok. The artists they were showcasing were ok. I think they could have more artists and more diverse art works.

The art is different and thought provoking. Atmosphere is nice but a little warm. I'm hoping they expand.

Clean, neat, friendly staff. Close to parking. Free admission, donations accepted. Not the largest gallery, but lots of interesting things to see.

Budget about an hour to explore this museum. It is a bit on the smaller side (coming from a very large city) but it is well curated and fun to explore. Admission is free so there's no excuse not to visit.

We had a fun time attending the preschool class on sculpture and then spent a lot of time with a 1 year-old and 3 year-old in the children's art section. Our kids loved playing with magnetic blocks, art supplies, costumes, and musical instruments. An incredible find for our family! Do check out the Cafe -- Norah's Cafe -- one of... More

The population of Roanoke, VA is about 100,000 so I was surprised to find an Art Museum that housed art by Thomas Hart Benton, Winslow Homer, John Singer Sargent and Norman Rockwell and many more artists. And this museum won't break your wallet because thanks to a generous donation by a local business, admission to the general gallery is free.... More

As many other reviewers have mentioned, this museum isn't the Met. As far as art museums in Virginia go, the VMFA in Richmond and the Chrysler Museum in Norfolk are your go-tos for classic, comprehensive fine arts collections; they are both excellent and I love them. What the Taubman lacks in collection it makes up in spirit. I guarantee that... More
