This is a small museum but I was pleasantly surprised because they had wonderful masterpieces and a great selection of Western Art.

Great exhibits, parking, and staff. Make it a point to see this soon. Greek items were very on-point, and well worth the time. My wife and I are greatly looking forward to our next visit.

Visited on a Sunday before heading out on the road. Free admission. Had a varied collection, with a little of everything. The building was beautiful. We enjoyed a special exhibit of chromolithographs of Yellowstone, very timely since we plan to visit there next summer.

Lovely building surrounded by lovely grounds and gardens. There were folks practicing yoga in the yard, what a nice idea. While we saw on exhibit many nice pieces from well and lesser known artists, the collection felt a little stunted. I might suggest a couple of hours at the beginning or end of each day where the museum could admit... More

Enjoyed this free art museum as soon as we got out of the car. There is an interesting sculpture garden and waterscape on the grounds and the building itself is a piece of art. Inside is a great collection of pieces including a restored Rembrandt and several Monets. Very nice experience!

Susan Buffet paid for free admission for all takers for three years. I think we're into Year 2 at the moment. All museums should be free. Thanks.

I think this is one of the most beautiful art museums in the world. It's small collection is exquisitely curated--and it is housed in space that is awe-inspiring and jaw-dropping. From a restored Rembrandt portrait to impressive and hauntingly beautiful lithographs of Native Americans, the Joslyn gives its art room to breathe. And it's curators have managed to craft explanations... More

Nice selection of art. I especially enjoyed the Thomas Moran exhibit and was glad my trip coincided with it. Also liked the restored Rembrandt, the explanation of it and the before and after pictures. Food at the Café was good and so was the gift shop.

For a small, free museum, this was very impressive. I tend to sway more to modern art, and I was thoroughly impressed with the collection in this area. The architecture of the building enhanced the experience.
