5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Even though the Speed Art Museum is closed for renovations at the moment, it's a great place to visit to see famous artist as well as local artist works.

Used to be free to enter, miss that. Beautiful art and objects. Easy parking next door. Middle of U of L campus.

“Leftovers from real museums.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Having traveled and visited several art museums I can tell you I was sorely disappointed in the small amount of cool art--you know, the stuff that is recognizable on coffee cups and other kitsch. I just wanted to see some cool art.

“Nice museum - even if museums aren't your thing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

We went to the Speed Museum as a second or third choice after some other attractions fell through when we had company come to Louisville to visit us. Some of our party were U of L students, so they got discounted admission, so that was nice to save a few bucks. There was a lot more to see here than we thought, so we didn't get to spend quite as much time in the special exhibit as we did walking through the upper part of the museum (and gawking at the folks setting up for a wedding) but it was still a thoroughly enjoyable time. If we head back, we'll be sure to budget more time so we can see everything.

“Excellent art museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

A gem in Louisville but I read that it will be closed for renovation starting in Oct 2012 - checkout before you go
