Lovely museum with just the right amount of content to pleasantly take up half a day. The building itself is very impressive also! Staff were very friendly and helpful.

The art collection is really great and very well presented. There are many works by famous artists. Nearby is a great outdoor sculpture presentation of the history of Omaha.

Well laid out, with truly beautiful pieces well-displayed. The sculpture garden outside is not to be missed, and the staff is friendly and helpful.

I love the regular collection and the special exhibits we've seen here over the years. The sculptures outside are well worth visiting.

The Joslyn Art Museum has an excellent collection spanning the last 2,000 years. The special exhibits are a must-see, for they are typically very exciting. There is currently no admission charge to visit the museum, but there is a charge for the special exhibit. It is usually quiet, and my wife and I like to take our grandchildren to visit.... More

The gallery is well laid out in a flowing path so that you don't feel like you are missing any pieces. The employees were friendly and helpful. The building itself is a work of art. It was a very warm day so we did not go outside to the sculpture gardens. We only walked around inside. The only negatives were... More

I visited last summer and was surprised that the tour was free. There is beautiful art inside and out. Everything seemed so honest, every ethnicity was represented. There were lots of Native American artifacts. This is a true museum!

Free museum, feels like one you'd pay for. Some traveling exhibits you do pay for, but the permanent exhibits here, including two outdoor sculpture gardens and a children's area are more than enough to delight all ages.

I been here before when I was in high School but that was long ago. I was very interested to take a break and since I was in town why not. JOSLYN ART MUSEUM (JAM) is the heart and soul of OMAHA ART & CULTURE. The JAM is just the right size and can offer you a solid 3 to... More

You can't beat a free admission. This appears to be a fantastic art museum to me, however I am artistically challenged, so my review may not mean much to serious artists. Just to be clear, I once passed the national exam for highly qualified teachers with an over 90% score--pretty good, considering I scored 50% on the fine arts section!... More
