great place

Albright has been around a long time, one of Buffalo's finest features on Elmwood Ave. So many great works of art and lovely grounds. Jazz concerts too.

We liked everything about this well planned and executed museum. They were featuring VIDEO presentations and they were fabulous. Many of the displays were in darkened private galleries and lights came on to usher you to the best spots to view. Explanations and viewing tips also appeared out of the dark as you approached and other than having to spend... More

Being unaware that there was an entrance on both sides of the building, or more than two entrances, we followed the signs to "New Entrance in Portico" and found ourselves completely in the dark as it was a video viewing gallery, completely unlit except for videos playing on large screens. Having found an attendant we were then able to grope... More

I had never been to this museum before but knew that it had a contemporary focus. Most of their popular works are out on tour as Treasures of the Queen City. In the meantime there is a small hallway in the 1902 building that contains a very basic permanent collection, with a brief overview of the progression from classical to... More

This is one of the most important museums in the USA for contemporary and modern art. Many very famous pieces are owned and advertised by the Albright, but due to limited space, only a very small percentage of their collection can be seen. Many very famous works such as the Frieda Kahlo are almost never on display, according to the... More

Conveniently located on Elmwood, you will find this museum to have a nice eclectic collection. There is something for everyone. I live in Buffalo so I go anytime I get a chance for their special presentations. First Friday's are free and very nice!!

If you think that Buffalo would not be a bastion of fine art, I would have to disagree. They have a very impressive collection of fine art and well known world artists on display. Give yourself at least a couple of hours for the full tour and if you're a reader, give it extra time as well. You will be... More

We think we are pretty cool here in Austin but the Albright-Knox knocked it out of the park with their recent exhibit. Didn't expect this at all, it's really great. We are not much into video installations but this will grow on you. It's worth a trip to Buffalo just to see "Evolution (Megaplex) 2010" in the permanent collection -... More

Great modern art collection with good rotating exhibits. I saw a really awesome Pop Art of the 60's show there.
