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

having traveled extensively, and visited museums all over the world, I can say this gallery is one of the best. With an emphasis on modern art, but with an extensive collection of "old masters", this gallery can hold its own with museums in Major cities across the globe.

The museum has a very nice collection and it's not crowded. It's pleasant just wandering and taking in the beautiful, varied works.

We were initially disappointed to learn that our favourite pieces are currently on a cross country tour but we lucked into a gallery tour that highlighted and explained the modern art selection currently being featured. None of the artists were known to us previously. We tend to be old school but the curator gave us a fresh perspective on the... More

Didn't rate the special exhibitions that highly, but the ground floor had the most amazing selection of 20th century paintings. And look out for the Mirror Room.
