This museum was very peaceful on a hot August afternoon. There are lovely Old Master paintings and changing exhibits. The café was a nice place to relax with a cold drink.

I went and spent about an hour. Which is about the right amount of time to spend. I would say no more than 90 minutes to see everything, read everything, and enjoy it. Admission is FREE for military! It is very quiet and the staff are helpful in directing you to different exhibits. There is a coffee snack shop inside... More

We visited the museum on a weekday morning just before lunch and pretty much had the place to ourselves. The museum was smaller than I anticipated, but its visual arts collections are amazingly diverse from Asian arts to traditional American to European religious art to Western art. Because of the museum's modest amount of exhibit space, I can only imagine... More

I was impressed by the quality of this art museum on the University of Utah Campus. It is located in the Marcia and John Price Building on campus. There are different sections in the gallery focusing on high quality art. Much of the art I knew and was impressed by the selection. They have art that focuses on the ancient... More

This is a little, unexpected, gem. Unexpected, because I didn't think that there would be a museum in Salt Lake City with such high quality, and eclectic, collections. Gem, because it was really great. From what I gather, the collections were largely the work of one person, who collected, and probably funded, the works on display, over a 20 year... More

Compared to other large city museums, this one is quite small. It's like the difference between going to a large grocery store and a convenience store. It has many categories of art, and some quality pieces, but just a few works in each section. Because of my poor sense of direction, I usually get lost in museums, but not this... More

The Museum opened at 11am on Sunday and there were very few people there, which allowed me to take my time at the exhibits that I most enjoyed. They offer a good mix of kinds of art, with a larger exhibit of natural Utah Indian artifacts.

The museum is located on the University campus, easy access from my downtown hotel via the SLC light rail system. The museum collection is interesting and varied and the exhibits are well curated.. The western art holdings in particular are excellent and varied, and the temporary exhibits were fantastic. Allow several hours. I had lunch at the museum cafe, delicious... More

We have visited the UMFA a few times for special exhibits. Recently we had wanted to see the exhibit on the Bingham Canyon mine. It was very well done, including works from the museum's collection along with borrowed works from various sources. It piqued an interest in us about the process of curating a special exhibit. I would suggest that... More

This is a lovely museum that you can easily enjoy 1 1/2-2 hours exploring. I suggest taking one of the short tours to get you well acclimated and then take off on your own. They have a very nice cross selection of works and they rotate stored works to keep things changing. There is also a very nice restaurant and... More
