“The Taubman is Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

The Taubman Museum of Art (no longer the name listed) is great. The exhibits are nice and admission is free. The space for children is wonderful! The architecture, though does not fit the surroundings of Roanoke, is fantastic once inside. So much natural light! I will be back!!

“A Monstrosity Looking for a Place to Happen”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2012

Don't waste your money or your time. Boring. The only thing that would have made this dump workable and profitable would have been an IMAX theater. Unfortunately, the geniuses who built this thought 3-D would never make it. Now they're begging for support.

“Great Little Museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2007

Great little museum. Nice collection for such a regional museum. New art museum is under construction, it will surpass even the collection.

Nice side trip if in Roanoke.
