I have been attending exhibits at the Allbright-Knox since 1989 and it is a gallery with a carefully curated permanent collection, serene and spacious galleries and a devoted local community supporting and enhancing its maintenance. Artists often work with the Allbright to do site specific installations and because the site is so conducive and magnificent, so often are the installations.... More

a world class gallery/art museum with an amazing collection. It is user friendly and a vibrant part of the community. First friday, music, lectures, and other events are first class and important to a vibrant culture in an historic city that continues to thrive, quietly and qualitatively. Across the street is another great art center and behind the gallery is... More

I don't really think of Buffalo when I think of a world class art museum, maybe that it because I lived in Spain for three years but this museum certainly surprised me. Its small but they have some really lovely permanent pieces and their exhibit at the time was very interesting.

The items from the permanent collection are varied and well displayed; learned some new concepts while viewing and listening to the audio guide (worth getting) A great place to spend a few hours

If visiting Buffalo area, make a point to to go this art gallery. It is an excellent gallery and the location is prime. It is across the street from Buffalo State College on the west side, across from Hoyt Lake and the Boat House, the Rose Garden where Shakespaere in the Park takes place every summer. There are also Sunday... More

we got to the A-K "between special exhibits" so the museum was half price because half closed. The permanent collection on display was varied from several early (1903) Picassos contrasted with a Jeff Koon's piece (one of his better works) to some good pop art examples. The exterior sculpture was wonderful. Worth a visit when the special exhibits are in... More

We stopped by on a Sunday afternoon and a docent wanted to lead us on a tour, but one exhibition was being changed so we didn't see everything. She was very informed about the collection; she has been there for many years. We never would have realized the visual tricks of the color field modern paintings without her suggestions. Nice...

There is something for every artful soul - modern to classic and everything inbetween. The staff is friendly, the layout is interesting, and the parking is convenient.

The Albright-Knox Art Gallery has an amazing Modern and Contemporary art collection. Recently, they have started having some incredible programming and extremely interesting exhibitions. If you like Guggenheim Museum, you will love the Albright-Knox!
