I enjoy it so much I have a membership. I especially like the new exhibits. The Poseidon exhibit was extremely interesting. The building is very beautiful outside, with beautiful gardens and outdoor works of art.

This art museum is exceptional. They have so many impressive works of art and the "new" Rembrandt portrait of Dirck van Os.

Just opened was a Warhol exhibit with iconic displays of Mao Tse Tung and Marilyn Monroe. Don't miss the incredible art deco architecture in the original entry area and the amazing courtyard. (And...

This is a beautiful art gallery, with free admission. The rooms are large and they have some fabulous art, especially in the modern art and Impressionist rooms. This is definately worth spending the afternoon strolling through. The employees were knowledgable and provided helpful information about the art. They had a special exhibition of Worhol prints while we were there. We... More

The Joslyn Art Museum is a great way to spend a couple of hours in Omaha. The building itself is beautiful, and its exhibits are wonderful. Admission is always free for the permanent collection with a fee charged for traveling or special exhibits. The outside sculpture garden is delightful, and the children's outside exhibit is charming. I live in Omaha... More

Great set of permanent exhibits. From the renaissance to pop art the exhibits are well presented and provide an interesting art history. Additional galleries hold temporary exhibitions, from national touring shows to the locally curated shows. The Omaha Zoo and Joselyn Museum are two of Omaha's treasures.

We popped in to the museum on our last day in Omaha and found a wonderful place to spent a couple of hours. You can wander through the exhibits (most of them free) without being overwhelmed. The collection includes world renowned artists like Monet, Bierstadt, Rodin, and Cassat. We really enjoyed the artwork by Native Americans and the HUGE Chihuly... More
