Outstanding collection of modern art. Beautiful buildings, lovely grounds on the edge of Buffalo's Olmsted park and parkway system.

The Albright-Knox is a wonderful museum. While it includes works from many time periods, most of the art was collected in the mid 20th century, and it's greatest strength is in the area of abstract expressionism: Jackson Pollack, de Kooning, Mark Rothko, Franz Kline, Arshile Gorky, etc. Also a good collection of early 20th century paintings. So if you "don't... More

One of the most beautiful structures in Buffalo and definitely worth your time. You can check on this, but they usually have free admission the first Friday of every month. There's also a restaurant and outdoor spaces that are very welcoming in the summer. It's across the street from the Burchfield Penny gallery, also worth seeing. A couple of blocks... More

I love art and museums and during our get away in Buffalo we visited this little gem. I was surprised to see one of Constantin Brancusi's sculpture Mlle Pogany. It made my day as I am an admirer of Brancusi's work. What a beautiful piece of work! Mlle Pogany was the sculptor's love. I loved to see some of Picaso's... More

There are many things to like about visiting Buffalo, once one of the wealthiest and largest cities in the nation. In addition to many architectural gems by Frank Lloyd Wright and Louis Sullivan, the city boasts the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, a world-class art museum. Besides its own rich collection, the museum presents important visiting exhibitions in a beautiful space. A... More

This is a small museum but worth a visit if you are interested in art. This is not the MOMA but it is simply an elegant, little place when visiting Buffalo

My wife and I returned to Albright Knox Art Gallery after about a 15 year absence. Virtually everything is modern art, with a few impressionistic and cubist items. We were there with a friend and all three of us were bored after 30 minutes.

Our French friends visited us in Buffalo and by far the highlight of their visit was the Albright-Knox. They were thrilled to see so much French painting and loved the layout, the "walkability" of the gallery. We had a delightful lunch in the gallery's restaurant.

The Albright-Knox is a must see if you are in Buffalo. It has a superb collection of modern art, mostly American and it is situated in a beautiful park-like setting.

Albright-Knox is well worth a visit. Great collection, atmosphere and surroundings. Exhibit is always changing. You can feel here. It is big but not overwhelming. Part of what makes Buffalo a super place to live. Also, across the street is the Burchfield-Penney Art Gallery which specializes in local artists, like CHARLES BURCHFIELD! You will enjoy Delaware Park, magnificent houses and... More
