Beautiful building and art.

The Joslyn is one of the finest art museums of the West and Midwest. It contains a wonderful collection of Native American objects from the Plains and and a rich collection of paintings by the handful of professional artists who went west with army expeditions and European nobility hunting trips. This is balanced by a respectable representative collection of Baroque... More

The Joslyn Art Museum, with its pink granite facade, is an imposing structure. Inside it has a somewhat small but impressive permanent collection. Its strong suit is the great temporary exhibitions that change regularly. Nice airy eating area in the cafeteria located in the atrium.

Nicely surprised with the quality of this beautiful museum! Plus a very good collection of Native American art. Nice gift shop and youth section. Bonus: it's free admission! Didn't expect Omaha to have such a great facility.

The Joslyn Museum presents well curated collections from across centuries of art. Early European collection, a Dutch masterpiece and Impressionist works are well represented. Collection also highlights Native American art and the collections make good use of the Art Deco building. Worth a visit and make sure to enjoy the outdoor sculpture museum which has a work from Rodin, among... More

Starting with the stunning Chihuli glass sculptures in the atrium (drive by when the sun is low in the sky and you'll know what i mean) and thru all the touring exhibits they draw , this is a world class museum. Probably better value than the zoo which is saying a lot.

Joslyn Art Museum is filled with all kinds of art, something for everyone: paintings (modern, traditional, and historic), sculptures, glass. Its collection of western American art is world famous. Photos are allowed with no flash. The sculpture garden outside also offers many photo ops. Since obtaining a grant, the museum is now FREE. A must see.
