The Gallery has a huge collection but unfortunately we happened to visit at a time when many of their famous works were out on tour. Nevertheless, there were other delights on site - the Mirror Room, Millie Chen's wallpaper and a couple of Picasso's. We particularly liked the outdoor sculptures.

This is a big league art gallery, with a considerable collection of French impressionists. There are some newer works here too, including a fully mirrored room which you need to take your socks off to enter. The Sunday brunch is a classic, and the grounds are nice too, with a view of Delaware Lake and the Historical Society building.

The Jackson Pollack Convergence print hanging in my office said "Albright Knox", so I decide to visit while in Buffalo on business. I'm so glad I made the time to visit! This isn't the kind of modern art museum with a lot of sketchy things that I could find at a flea market. This is a top end museum, with... More

They have a nice selection of art, especially for a smaller city. There are some things you'll recognize, and a lot of less well-known pieces by very well-known artists, which I really like being exposed to. Even as an NYC resident with access to places like the Met or MoMA, I like to visit the Albright-Knox whenever I'm in Buffalo... More

The Albright-Knox, albeit not a giant production like in some large cities, possesses a unique charm that makes it such an appealing attraction. The collection is impressive, from several Picassos to an amazing Jackson Pollack. The Op-Art collection and the Mirrored Room are also spectacular and a must-see. We were disappointed on our recent visit, as several works were on... More

There was a special exhibition on the second floor that we were happy was there because the gallery seemed rather empty to all of us. Thye have some very nice pieces, and the website says they have 6,500 works of art, but I think many of them... More

While I am not especially a fan of modern art, I am always keen to see new things and learn and I did enjoy the impressionist and post-Impressionist works on display as well as some of the pop art. It cost $12 for me to get in and $8 for my elderly Mum. It's not a huge museum and we... More
