My grandchildren were coming for the weekend so I looked up things to do in Roanoke and it said a free day at the Art Museum . We have never been there so we did and I was totally pleasantly surprised at what was there. The girls age 10 and 5 had a wonderful time. The ladies that work there... More

It would be hard to complain about a free museum in a world class building. The permanent collection is certainly worth viewing and while the Modern art will not be to everyone's taste, they change exhibits often and frequently have gems. What they do not have is crowds. You can walk right up to each item and ponder as long... More

Ive been here many time. Although the space is limited cause it locate in downtown. Paintings are beautiful but there isnt much to see. The architecture of the building is what impressed me. It resembled the star. And you can look straight to the mill mountain star on the top of the mt.

We visited on a rainy Saturday with 6 young kids and couldn't have been more pleased with our experience. The children's area was phenomenal. So much to do! All of the staff from the security, to front desk, to the kids area were very kind. The scavenger hunt helped keep the kids interested in the exhibits. I was truly impressed... More

This art museum is NOT super exciting. The only thing it has that is awesome is the children's art discovery and play area. I am glad I did not pay to visit this location. It is not worth visiting as a paid location. Glad it has free admission.

Small, but well maintained. Great variety. Free admission sponsored by Advanced Auto Parts. My wife and I visited several years ago when it cost about $10 per person, a little pricey, but even then well worth the cost of admission. A "must see" now that it's free. The downstairs interactive arts area for children was very busy, appeared to be... More

There is so much potential with this museum. Roanoke needed it. It will keep Rnk on the map and I hope Rnk realizes that. The art often could be increased in quantity. Too much open, unutilized space that should be filled. Get local artists involved, school art depts, local government, etc. But for now...it will do. They are wise enough... More

This was my second trip to the Taubman Museum. As an art teacher I love to get ideas for things and artists my students can learn about. This museum has so many wonderful works of art it is difficult to say which is my favorite. Seeing works by artist names I recognize makes it even more fun. The children's creative... More

On a recent weekend stay in Roanoke Virginia my wife and I set out to explore several of the attractions in and around the city. The Taubman Museum of Art immediately caught our attention based on the striking and unusual architecture of the building. Parking was easy in the Tower garage and the distance from the parking garage to the... More
