Great to see the varied exhibits! Original Rembrandts, O'Keeffes, Remingtons, Bierstadts, and much more! Due to a generous donation, admission is currently free, and we also enjoyed the special exhibit. My niece got in for no charge with her UNL student ID and it was only $10 for my admission. Nice staff and nice layout.

The Joslyn Art Museum obtains special exhibits so check their calendar and plan your visit. Nice collection of artwork too.

This is a nice museum. Lots of nice artwork and easy to navigate layout. The courtyard is really neat to walk around. My husband went here on a date and it was really nice and relaxing.

This is a very wonderful art museum that needs to be better known. They have paintings from local artists through the great masters. With a recent endowment to the museum, admission has been free, and this is a very good stop for art enthusiasts.

A local favorite with concert hall and great cafe in the atrium, that we particularly love! Must see due to Dale Chihuly's glass and the fountain court, besides all the wonderful art in very special galleries and wings.

We took 2 pre-schoolers to the new kids' area in basement. It's free and beautifully laid out with 8 station areas. Two use big touch screens to create art work, one mounted vertically on the wall and the other is flat into the floor. Another technology station uses props and art as a background to make stop action videos. Our... More

We went to the museum during the In Living Color: Andy Warhol & Contemporary Printmaking exhibit. First we toured the Joslyn Art Museum, which was interesting & had more than we thought it would. Then we did the In Living Color exhibit, which was priced fairly to go see. I would definitely return for another exhibit. Nice place to spend... More

This is a wonderful place to wonder around on a winter afternoon! The art collections are displayed well and the atmosphere is quite, calm and relaxing. Also a great place for artistic inspiration! The staff is friendly and quite knowledgeable. Overall, this was a wonderful find and a very enjoyable memory of my journey.
