Rotating exhibits are Great!

The Joslyn features many outstanding rotating exhibits through a year's time. With Saturdays being 'free' entry, it's a great way to see art!

Do not hesitate to visit with children of any age. Ask about free children's activities, which are catered to different ages and interests. You can check out a backpack that has art materials inside, and ideas for projects. You can do scavenger hunts on your phone or ipad, or check out one for free. They also have a wonderful interactive... More

A great place to slow down and get lost for part of the day. I love the Chihuly display and the fountain.

Joslyn Art Museum has been around far longer than I can even remember. It was a staple field trip activity throughout my childhood. I always loved going and for more than just the endless halls of beautiful art, but the building itself is stunning. If you're in town and you enjoy art museums, it's a must stop.

It exceeded my expectations and was of Smithsonian Quality. I especially enjoyed the art from the Go West! exhibit on the American frontier -- well worth the extra $10 admission, especially considering the main... More

We were unprepared for the richness of this collection. We came to the see the regionalist of which they have several good work and were surprised how much more there was to see including the impressionists and some old masters. We were particularly surprised by how much we liked the western art, something we usually don't go out of our... More

Don't miss a visit to this local landmark housed in a gorgeous art deco structure built of pink granite. The interior of the original structure is paved with fantastic marbles in a myriad of colors. The collection is a charming dog's breakfast covering art history with a focus on significant works of the American West. There are rooms at that... More
