Fairly small museum but nice collections. Building has been expanded from an original library, portions of which have been preserved, including a reading room which is a nice touch. There are however, some under-utilized spaces.

Nice variety for a small city museum. There is even an Art-o-Mat on site! The gift shop had wonderful local craft pieces from art to pottery to glassware. A definite stop if you're looking for something to do.

I applaud this small museum's thoughtful exhibitions. However, for a museum noted for its Grant Wood collection, there really aren't many on view! The museum has an excellent small store - selling original artwork from their local community, as well as traditional museum shop goods....More

Made a quick detour to this local art museum, and sadly, it left us wishing it offered more. The 20 or so pieces by Grant Wood were impressive, but the rest of the displays were quickly skipped through. I know it is hard to acquire...More
