While I am not especially a fan of modern art, I am always keen to see new things and learn and I did enjoy the impressionist and post-Impressionist works on display as well as some of the pop art. It cost $12 for me to get in and $8 for my elderly Mum. It's not a huge museum and we... More

Great selection of art work...beautifully displayed in a wonderful environment. The building is stunning and the atmosphere serene. There is also a cafe and a nice gift shop. The outdoor sculptures are conversation starters!

My boyfriend and I spent an afternoon in this gallery and thoroughly enjoyed it. I personally liked the size of the exhibits as it is all very manageable (we were here during the Sincerely Yours exhibition). I can usually only take a couple hours of walking through a gallery and that was the perfect amount of time for Albright-Knox. I... More

The Albright Knox Gallery is an American treasure. Currently the exhibition " Treasures of the Queen City" ( meaning Buffalo) is in its final weeks before the exhibit goes to San Diego. It is worth the time and effort if you are within driving range and there is beautiful Delaware Park for a walk before or after you visit the... More

The Albright Knox gallery is the most astounding and selective collection of modern art in America. There is not a single redundant piece, and everything in the collection is a masterpiece that can hang proud next to the best of MoMA or the Met. The curators must be the best. Everything is hanging in the right place, and the location... More

This art gallery has wide ranging styles in it's collection... So check out what the exhibit is online before you go. I have been here many times... Sometimes unimpressed and other times blown away. As they say, Beauty is in the eye of the beholder!

Treasures of the Queen City (that would be Buffalo) is a traveling exhibit but was on a brief detour to it's home gallery - quite a tour de force - with masterpieces from Pollak, Dali, Lichtenstein, Miro, Johns and many more. Was in awe of the enormous almost 3-D Anselm Keifer paintings and appreciated being able to take them in... More

2nd visit in 10 years -- the complex is beautiful, the history of collecting the various pieces of art work over the years is quite something......Treasures of the Queen City was the main event, and well worth checking out -- the Anselm Kiefer exhibit is a must see -- lunch at the AK Cafe was nice......the grounds and the view...

Each time we visit Buffalo, we make certain to include the Albright-Knox Art Gallery which houses arguably one of the finest collections of contemporary art anywhere. It is interesting to note that the purchase date of many of the pieces is the same as the date that the work was completed. Apparently, Seymour Knox was such an avid and knowledgeable... More
