Wonderful museum of work by a well known, local artist
Jul 2015 • Family
The museum displays the paintings and sculpture of Edna Hibel, A Florida transplant from Massachusetts. The cost is minimal. The art is excellent.

Disappointment
Aug 2015 • Solo
Before I ventured out to visit the museum which is quite a distance from where I reside, I checked the hours and days on their website and read that the museum opens at 11 a.m. and is free on Tuesday. I arrived at 11:40 a.m. on Tuesday only to find the museum closed. This day being my birthday I was especially disappointed. I suggest that the web site for the museum be kept up to date, and also that proper signage be posted at Abacoa where the museum is situated since it is frustrating to walk around in the intense heat to locate the museum.

Classical Beauty

This is a place worth visiting more than once. The people curating the place are informative, the art possesses a classical delicacy, and the progression in Hibel's art demonstrates a deep connection with the relationship between mother and child. Very evocative!!!!

Not really a museum
Apr 2015 • Friends
The Hibel Museum is on the FAU campus in Jupiter, but is difficult to find. You need to park in the free visitor parking garage and walk over. (It is near the Courtyard by Marriott.). The exhibit is in one room and has few signs explaining what is on display, but the staff member gave us a private tour and for most of the time we were there we were the only visitors. The gift shop sold actual Hibels, with prices into the thousands. Ms. Hibel passed away in December 2014 so they still had books she had autographed. The museum has a donation box, but it is not required. If you are interested in Edna Hibel, it is a pleasant way to spend an hour or so.

A Hidden Gem
Feb 2015 • Friends
This free museum is located on the grounds of FAU. It is loaded with plenty of beautiful artwork by Edna Hibel, and there is a docent who will take you around and tell you interesting stories about the artist, and her variety of artwork.
A great place to stop for 1/2-1 hour visit.
There is also a small gift shop with pretty objects to buy.

Rainy day spot

Great variety of art. Friendly staff. Nice rainy day activity. Culture is never a bad thing. The Museum continues to offers a Concert Series inside the Hibel Museum on the second Sunday of each month from December through March at 2

Tiny Museum, Delightful Exhibit
May 2014 • Friends
Although I've lived within biking distance of the Hibel Museum for almost two years now, it wasn't until my sister came to visit and we were looking for something to do that we decided to check it out. I had a friend who was a collector of Hibel, so I was familiar with her lovely mother and child portraits. The museum has a broad representation of her work on display, from her first ever artwork at the age of 10 through her days as an art student to her more current work.

The museum is small -- really just one large room in a concrete outbuilding on the campus of FAU. We first perused the artwork on our own, and then asked the docent to answer some questions for us. That lovely lady did answer our questions about techniques, and was also full of other interesting information about Ms. Hibel's life and her work. My favorite work is one where she let her toddler granddaughter put color on a canvas, and then painted her granddaughter's face in an open area. A portrait of the grown-up granddaughter is next to it.

Admission is free; donations are appreciated; and there is a small gift shop. I understand that there are events there during the year such as a tea or a concert. The museum is a pleasant way to spend a little time and learn something about this amazing contemporary artist!

Wonderful Artwork, and we Met Miss Hibel herself...
Dec 2012 • Family
We attended a concert at the Hibel Museum of art, and we loved it. The artwork was beautiful, and Miss Hibel was there herself ( she is 97 I believe). It was wonderful meeting her and getting pictures with her. The gift shop is amazing, and we bought a book from there and have enjoyed it.
The artwork is beautiful and well done, and the museum itself is in such a good area.
