Yes , you can go thru it relatively quick , however the most important -- is that you do read all about the articles displayed . So yes , absolutely allow yourself some time .... More

Beautiful pieces and fun descriptions of the history of the pieces, as well as special exhibits that are fun and different. It was a tad pricey though, for the amount of time you will spend in the building. The gift shop has lots of interesting selections.

Home to a collection of many great works of art, this is a "must see" when visiting Buffalo. Galleries are updated frequently and national touring collections also are brought in for display. Parking is conveniently located close to the entrances and the building and outdoor exhibits are something to see before or after your visit. If you are a fan... More

My daughters and I spent a good hour at the Gallery. We enjoyed the art and exhibits. Parking is very convenient and cost $5.

I had long wanted to visit this gallery and finally made the trip on a cold, snowy winter day. The gallery is housed in a monumental structure near the down town area and adjacent to some beautiful parkland. There are a number of outdoor displays and it would make for a very nice walk in better weather. There is ample... More

My mother said they replaced a lot of the more traditional works with modern ones. That is a great way to describe it. I like to see some really nice works by people I never heard of and there were some nice surprises. It's nice, seems like they tried hard to get a variety of the more well known artists.

It can be surprising to visitors that Buffalo has such a great collection of modern art. Though it cannot compete in size with similar museums in larger cities, it can compete in quality and variety of artists. Also,... More
