Not crazy about the design of the building but the inside is great.

Took my grandkids down to tour the museum. It was free and there is a great kids room. It is airy and light inside. Many beautiful pieces of art there. Great place to spend... read more

The Taubman’s bold, modern architecture style declares it a work of art itself among the nearby downtown Roanoke buildings. One could parachute into the area and have no doubt which building houses artworks. You enter the museum in a wide, vaulted space with a most interesting curved staircase leading upwards to the expositions; the risers are a light green glass... More

This museum looks a little out of place in the middle of Roanoke's 1882 farmer's market and in the shadow of the Hotel Roanoke. It's a little as though an alien space-ship landed in the Victorian era just for fun. And fun it is. Once inside, the people were really friendly and the collection was interesting. Much of the art... More

Took my grandkids down to tour the museum. It was free and there is a great kids room. It is airy and light inside. Many beautiful pieces of art there. Great place to spend and afternoon. There are also many classes taught there. A restaurant is on the premises although I have not tried their fare.

I visited during a company conference. The location is one of the most eclectic buildings in the area. The bottom floor housed our reception and was well decorated. The top floor where the artwork is was breathtaking. I enjoyed everything about the museum. It definitely gives you the upscale modern artistic feel with the southern charm.

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.
