This is a wonderful small gallery with a great collection of modern art, predominantly American but with some international pieces. The gallery staff is friendly and justifiably proud of its collection. My only regret is that the relatively small size of the gallery allows them to show only a fraction of their collection.

My daughter recently studied Miro for her high school Spanish class. One project required her to copy one of his paintings. She chose "Harlequin's Carnival" and spent hours painting a beautiful copy. We were all very excited when TIME magazine published a story saying that the original painting could be found at the Albright-Knox. We planned a special spring break... More

One of the best museums outside of New York City. Wonderful cafe and museum shop. A great place to visit and take children for a wonderful experience.

Great collection in a great building, plus free on Sundays. The best Clifford Still paintings on the planet, plus lots more, some nice outdoor sculpture on the grounds.

Last weekend, on the way home from Canada, we stopped at the Albright-Knox to check out the latest exhibits. What a wonderful surprise when we arrived to discover that they are making admission free on Sundays until May 17, 2015. They are always open free on M&T First Fridays but this is a special opportunity for people to see some... More

We stopped by on a Friday because of the free admission. We were able to have a free guided tour, which was very helpful! There was also live music in the cafe from 5:30 to 7:30. The A-K doesn't have a huge collection of art, but what they have is excellent! It's a wonderful place to spend a Friday afternoon... More

The Albright- Knox Art Gallery is not to be missed. From the moment you see the stunning architecture and every step along the way you will be in awe. I have been in many galleries around the world and this one certainly can compare or surpass any of them. There are many collections that cover a wide variety of time... More

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
