Great museum

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

I love art and museums and during our get away in Buffalo we visited this little gem. I was surprised to see one of Constantin Brancusi's sculpture Mlle Pogany. It made my day as I am an admirer of Brancusi's work. What a beautiful piece of work! Mlle Pogany was the sculptor's love. I loved to see some of Picaso's... More

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
