This was our 1st time at this museum, what a treat. If you like the story of the museum, you should check out the Joslyn Castle in Omaha. Now that is a beautiful piece of art.

A wonderful art museum to take the entire family to! Lots of great art, and new exhibits every few months. Terrific Gift Shop! It's free except for some major exhibits. A great way to spend a day!

We really enjoyed the museum. We did visit the special exhibit, which cost a reasonable fee. It was fabulous. They have special exhibits throughout the year. The remainder of the museum is well planned and fun to tour. All art enthusiasts need to visit!

The Joslyn is always a favorite, and the new In Living Color exhibit is fantastic! I had never seen a Warhol in person before, so that was a treat.

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.
