Disappointing
Sep 2021
We were told by several people that this was the best - we found the exhibits to be very random - not themed as you go through the museum. There was an abundance of modern art which is not what we prefer- so personal preference.

Works class. Go!

World class collection. Exquisite and fun art in every media that won’t disappoint. Check out the easily hiked outdoor artwalk paths appropriate for all ages. Nice coffee and gift shop and great special exhibitions. The one only criticism is the surrounding waterways immediately around the center - too much floating debris/garbage in the very muddy water detracts from the otherwise near perfectly beautiful environment. Kinda felt bad for the wedding happening there that day.

Great afternoon stop
Sep 2021
A lot of art to view here. Plenty of unique installations that rotate from time to time. The frank lloyd wright home is worth the wait, just make sure you get the free tickets ahead of time so you can enter when needed. The grounds have paths with unique art installations as well.

A Visual Feast!

Really glad to have gotten to see the North Forest Lights exhibit. The outdoor light and music installations are serene and technical at the same time and there are several that are interactive. Went with my daughter and mother and we all had a great time.

Fantastic in every way
Sep 2021 • Couples
We had heard such amazing things about this museum. And it totally lived up to the hype. World-class art in an architecturally gorgeous building that makes the most of its beautiful surroundings. The trails that wind out in every direction from the museum hold their own delights with sculpture and natural beauty at every turn. We requested the free, timed admission tickets to the Frank Lloyd Wright house that is on the property. That was a special treat. It’s not large, and you can only tour the first floor. And yet, how often do you get to tour one? The staff was friendly and helpful. Just top notch!

Even better than expected
Sep 2021 • Solo
This museum has long been on my list of places to go, and it exceeded my expectations in every way. The free tours are fabulous, and add much to the experience. The paid Frank Lloyd Wright house tour is also wonderful. Masking was strictly enforced. All employees were wonderfully helpful and friendly.

A Must-Do When You Are in the Area
Sep 2021
This museum was such a pleasant surprise. First, I did not expect parking and admission to be free. The special exhibit and the Frank Lloyd Wright House required a purchased ticket, but there is plenty to see if you don't go to those. The collection of America art is very diverse and interesting, with works from the early 19th century to the present. The infinity mirror room is fun. The trails are beautiful and also include works of art along the way. The restaurant has beautiful views. Don't miss this museum!!

World class art
Aug 2021 • Family
We enjoyed the museum for a couple of hours. The highlights were the infinity room, the modern collection and the outdoor sculptures. The staff was very friendly and good at answering questions because it was easy to get turned around. We used the cb outdoor app for the sculptures on the art Trial. We liked the Fly’s eye and the skyscape would have been neat if it hadn’t been 90 degrees. We got free tickets to the Frank Lloyd Wright house which was small and not the best FLW site. The museum was great and wonderful that it was free due to the Walmart sponsorship.

Ok visit

A variety of artwork.
Very unwelcoming feeling though. It’s hard to know where to go and how to start at first. The staff are not friendly and we felt like we were being stalked by one particular staff member.

Excellent Family Outing
Jul 2021
Excellent art displays in creative collections. The unique sculptures place throughout (like a vintage oversized dandelion from a hotel) add unique touch. There is a sense of exploration that you never know what you'll discover around the next corner. There is art and nature everywhere.

The art trails are amazing also while the Frank Lloyd Wright house on the premises is an added bonus.

My only complaint would be the road signage that directs people to the trails. It was non-existent from our approach. We had to use our GPS to get to a trailhead. Once there we took off walking, not really sure how long the trail was. We did enjoy watching the bikers perform runs as we walked past.

We would like to return and see some of the other trails. Highly recommend this museum and the trails.
