Excellent gallery presentations. Be aware this is not a place most kids would appreciate, when I was there it was mostly college students taking notes and moving quickly through it. Parking is rough if you are disabled, the parking structure is a long walk away....More

All of the pictures online show awesome sculptures so when we were visiting from Virginia we decided to go to the museum. We were highly disappointed that there was not one sculpture in the museum. Very misleading and we all left extremely disappointed. What a...More

This contemporary art museum is well laid out. It is not too large, so it is not overwhelming to the viewer. The exhibits are well placed and I left feeling inspired and refreshed.

Not a big fan of this museum—small with limited display area; at least they didn’t overcharge with the entrance fee. Standouts were the Georgia O’Keeffe works, and interestingly enough the tattoo’d lemons.

We finally joined and went last weekend. We especially liked the lower level gallery with the large format paintings. There's a rooftop restaurant that we'll try another time.

This is a smaller museum - so perfect if you don’t have a long time. It’s in a nice area of downtown that has lots of great restaurants and bars - so we went on a food tour, saw Union Station and then afterwards went...More

So thrilled you enjoyed your visit! We love our neighborhood too and it sounds like you explored it all! Next time you come back to town, check out the museum's cafe, you'll love the views and the sips.

Tara Donovan is such an interesting artist. She does these amazing 2D and 3D pieces using common items. They are very organic and play off the light and shadows in the room. Definitely worth seeing!

Incredible Tara Donovan exhibit brought us across the country and did not disappoint. Helpful and knowledgeable docents. Only reason it didn't get 5 stars was because of the odd coat/locker rooms, and the lack of water fountains and trash cans. Great overall experience, cool rooftop...More
