“Eh...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Nothing remarkable. Just normal artwork, normal exhibits. Not a whole lot special. Nice for out of towners, I guess.

“Well Done!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

This is a pink marble art deco jewel, complete with the biggest Chilhuly glass sculpture I have ever seen! Collection is excellent for a small museum, and current exhibits are of great interest. Lovely area to have coffee or lunch.

“We visit several times a year,”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

Good permanent exhibits follow the history of European art, then US art. Nice collection of regional art (Benton and Grant) and the historic western art like Bodmer. Great temporary exhibits in the new wing keep us going back. And the marble building itself is a treat.

We enjoyed spending our morning here looking at all the paintings. We had lunch in the cafe. The potato soup was very good!

“Beautiful Museum for Omaha”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

For a city the size of Omaha, this is a terrific museum. Nice exhibits, well cared for facility and lawns. Highly rated for spending a quiet afternoon just browsing through the galleries. Plenty of parking, easily located downtown.
