This was a wonderful surprise. Free fun and lots to do and entertain children . The staff were so nice and helpful. We will go back. Had no idea it would be so much fun for the children . They loved it!

The name changed a few years ago - look for the new listing for the "Taubman Museum of Art". I'm surprised that this list is still active on TripAdvisor.

Addmission is free! Great place to take family especially young children. They have a special area for them to do creative activities. Not to be missed!

The Taubman Museum of Art (no longer the name listed) is great. The exhibits are nice and admission is free. The space for children is wonderful! The architecture, though does not fit the surroundings of Roanoke, is fantastic once inside. So much natural light! I will be back!!

Don't waste your money or your time. Boring. The only thing that would have made this dump workable and profitable would have been an IMAX theater. Unfortunately, the geniuses who built this thought 3-D would never make it. Now they're begging for support.

Great little museum. Nice collection for such a regional museum. New art museum is under construction, it will surpass even the collection. Nice side trip if in Roanoke.
