“Wonderful Exhibition”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Fort Lauderdale Museum of Art is located in downtown Fort Lauderdale, close to many attractions, such as river walk. Currently, there is a very interesting exhibition “Wari: Per-Inca Lords if Peru”. The exhibition includes many beautiful ceramic and textiles artifacts from 600-1000 CE. The art of those artifacts represents impressive craftsmanship, the rich ancient culture and human civilization. You will have a chance to see it before May 19, 2013.

“Gallery and café with little character”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

An entire floor was inaccessible for new show being mounted, but I was charged full admission for the one remaining floor. Café closed at 2.30, with no hours posted. There was little logic to what was accessible. Photos of Andy Warhol and cars (temporary). Work of various photojournalists (in progress). A colourful African room. Mural by a Haitian artist trained in Canada.

“Limited number of pieces”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

A nice enough museum, but very few works of art on display. The pop art is great and has some excellent pieces in it. Other than that, we found the rest of the art underwhelming. Less than an hours viewing, even taking in everything. The next day we went to the Loewe museum of art in Coral Gables and that was much better.

“Very Good if more of it was open to view.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

Art of Peru was a great exhibit. The AshCan school of art was exceptionally well represented. Great glackens work on view. Repairs from storm Sandy still ongoing causing many of the galleries to be closed.

“Great Value for $10”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

They had a Andy Warhol exhibit and it was great. The museum is small but for the price it was a good 2 hour destination...
