The staff is friendly and willing to answer any questions you have. They have beautiful works of art from around the world and from various time frames. The art is displayed well and was visually a delight. There is also a sculture gared in front of the museum. The biggest surprise for me was that admission was free. This is... More

If art is a passion visit the Joslyn - what a great art gallery and museum - we spent 3 hours there and saw all the art collection, which included American ,such as Thomas Moran, Albert Bierstadt, Charles Remington etc, plus British and European artists !! ( a great Rembrandt self-portrait ) what a superb museum - a must visit.

The museum was free for us to attend & was a great way to spend a humid afternoon. There were several rooms inside the beautiful building that offered American, European, & modern art. The outside garden was also fun to see.

Grounds and building are very well kept. Pleasantly suprised that there is no admission fee for the museum. Very spacious and liked that it didn't feel cluttered with too many exibits jammed into each space. The interior fountain area was something I'd never seen in any art museums I'd previously been too, pretty cool. Had the pleasure of seeing Dr.... More

Great exhibits, parking, and staff. Make it a point to see this soon. Greek items were very on-point, and well worth the time. My wife and I are greatly looking forward to our next visit.

Visited on a Sunday before heading out on the road. Free admission. Had a varied collection, with a little of everything. The building was beautiful. We enjoyed a special exhibit of chromolithographs of Yellowstone, very timely since we plan to visit there next summer.

Lovely building surrounded by lovely grounds and gardens. There were folks practicing yoga in the yard, what a nice idea. While we saw on exhibit many nice pieces from well and lesser known artists, the collection felt a little stunted. I might suggest a couple of hours at the beginning or end of each day where the museum could admit... More

Enjoyed this free art museum as soon as we got out of the car. There is an interesting sculpture garden and waterscape on the grounds and the building itself is a piece of art. Inside is a great collection of pieces including a restored Rembrandt and several Monets. Very nice experience!
