We 2 sisters visited while in town for a music festival. Easy to find and lots of parking all around the building; we were there on a Thursday afternoon. Kind and helpful employees, small collection but some great pieces like a Rodin sculpture, art representing an artist's view of traumatized people, a Whistler painting, and more. Nice gift shop and restrooms. Probably won't go again anytime soon but recommend for others to check it out. Thursdays are free admission too.

I visited the MMA to see the special exhibit of Downton Abbey period costumes. The exhibit was nicely laid out with informative labels. I then walked through the museum’s series of small art galleries, which include some well known pieces and works by famous artists. I especially enjoyed the featuring of regional, American, Black, and women artists who are lesser known but have beautiful and interesting works.
Staff were friendly, helpful, welcoming.

Note, Google maps delivers you to the front door which is currently closed. Drive around block to a large parking lot and entrance on the west side of building.

Lovely! We enjoyed our brief visit to this museum. We came up to see the Dressing the Abbey exhibit which was really cool! It was laid out amongst some of the art on the walls beautifully. The gift shop is cute and small. The lady working there was delightful and very excited about the pieces in the museum. The two gentlemen working in the museum were kind and helpful. It's small but there are some awesome pieces there. They have a Hopper, Whistler and two Rodins! There are several beautiful pieces there highlighting the work of African American artists. A small museum but truly a gem.

I was surprised at the quality of the permanent collection. This is a small museum, but it has nice work by Edward Hopper, Whistler, and Pissaro. The contemporary art was interesting. The 19th C is the museum's strong point. Easy to find, parking is a breeze. Just a few minutes off the Interstate. If you like art, you need to check it out.

Visited Dec 21, 2023. Drove from Grand Rapids. Worth the trip! The displays of art and for Christmas were magnificent. The winter globe fisplsys were awesome as was the Christmas vintage decorations. This museum of art continues to outperm most others and especially the Grand Rapids Art Museum. Everyone involved should be proud and the Muskegon Museum Art is the gem if the city. Also went to the city library next door. It is just as wonderful. Old and beautiful. Glass floors on the second level, stained glass windows and beautiful vintage wood bookcase.

Ok, this museum is a hidden treasure, truly a gem in the heart of Muskegon, MI!

They have paintings by Pissarro, Whistler, Wyeth, Hopper, and many others all well displayed. They also have Chihuly’s in their collection, but that part is under construction. In 1 year they will have a brand new building to display them in! They also had an exceptional showing of paintings by African American artists.

This art museum is definitely worth 2-3 hours of your Tim if you’re in Muskegon! (I’d like to mention that the museum staff are engaging and simply delightful!)

Another traveler at our BnB recommended this Art Museum. I was skeptical, but it was so worth the $10 admission price! Very interesting exhibits and the security guards are very helpful and they were very informative and correct about their other Muskegon sites (the beach.....beautiful!) I highly recommend visiting this Art Museum!

We drove to Muskegon, Michigan to see the photography exhibit by Edward Curtis who photographed Native Americans over 100 years ago. The museum owns one of these rare folios and had the prints on display. The exhibit was awesome. Both by the scope and the quality of the prints. It must be mentioned that the exhibit is complete only one considers his voluminous writings, many tomes that resemble laboratory notes from a scientific experiment they are so detailed. Curtis' writings showed a sensitivity and a perceptiveness there belie the fact that he barely had any formal education. I was particularly impressed by the part of the exhibit that gave a counterpoint to what was inferred to be the thrust of Curtis' work. But the museum itself was a lovely place, totally unexpected, as I had never been to Muskegon. There is an elegant marble foyer and the exhibit halls are perfectly scaled for this exhibit. They had parts of the permanent collection on display as well, including wonderful works, paintings by Alfred Sisley, Pierre Bonnard, Edward Hopper, John Stuart Curry to name a few. And more than a few paintings by African-American artists mostly from the Detroit area.

This was a thoroughly enjoyable experience and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. We will return.

The front entry sets the tone for this small, yet remarkable museum! The permanent collection offers a sampling of fine works from different periods, such as portraits of Martin and Katharina Luther, Edward Hopper's New York Restaurant, MacMonnies' bronze Dianna, to Dale Chihuly's Cobalt Blue Persian Set with Cadmium Red Lip Wraps. The 87th Regional Exhibition featured an engaging array of works. A delightful way to spend two hours or more - you will enjoy it!
