This is a nice museum on Notre Dame's campus. It's not the best museum in the world, but a nice stop if you have time if you're already on the campus visiting.

We went specifically to see the Rembrandt etchings. The museum had magnifiers in the gallery so you could look up close at the art work which was very helpful. The whole gallery can be seen in as little as an hour if you do a...More

Most visitors to the University of Notre Dame campus in South Bend, Indiana, come to watch a football game on Saturday afternoon. But there are other attractions, not the least of which is the Snite Museum of Art. Coincidentally, it is located at 100 Moose...More

It is a perfect small art museum with some artifacts of Indian culture dating more than1000 years ago. Several very good paintings. Of course, it is not Art Institute in Chicago, but for South Bend this place is a must see. No entrance fee.

I attended a 'poetry slam' here, and strolled through the museum as well! I plan on returning every time I'm in town to visit my daughter!

This is a small but very interesting gallery on the Notre Dame campus. There's plenty to see, the staff are friendly, and the presentation is excellent. But at the moment, I would very strongly recommend a beautiful and mesmerising video installation by Timothy Earl O'Neill...More

…probably not worth a journey, there are certainly wonderful works that are worthy of deep consideration, though you need to wade through quite a lot of second rate stuff to find them. First, location: while the authorities see fit to pay $400 million to improve...More

This is a fantastic venue with ever-changing displays. Underrated and not visited enough. Maybe this is good because when you visit, there is no crowd.
