This is an art museum I visit every year when I am on the west side of the state. Being small, it is family friendly. There is a captivating Edward Hopper painting in their permanent collection that should not be missed.

This museum is a great stop for anyone in Muskegon. $5 for anyone over 17 isn't a bad price for what you get. Lots of very good paintings and fun to walk around in.

Small, well cared for and clearly well supported by the community. We always stop when are visiting. The touring or locally developed shows are very well done especially the Michigan Regional Show. The regular collection is small but well hung and informative. They have a glass gallery that is a nice side stop. This is clearly a museum that understands... More

This Museum isn't very large, but it contains some high quality pieces. In addition, they have rotating exhibits and an annual art exhibit from area schools. The building itself is beautiful, as it's made of marble. Definitely a little gem of Muskegon!

This art gallery has a fine collection for its size. The rooms are framed well. The change in display is timely and appropriate. We go several times a year.

Great to see the original Hopper painting, a print of which I have on my dining room wall. Nice, friendly staff. Nice collection of paintings, quite impressive--especially for a small city such as Muskegon. I like the gift shop too. Easy parking. Interesting variety of art work to look at. If you like art, check out this nice museum.

We grew up in Muskegon and had never been to the Art Museum. What a nice surprise! The collection is small but very good. We loved reading about the artists and the benefactors who had donated to the museum. Because it was small you could take time to see everything and actually remember what you saw!

Toke 3 of our great grandchildren to the museum to look for bones in Owl droppings; they had fun doing this. It was the 1st. time I've seen the museum since they moved. Very interesting for a small town more then I expected. Grand children had a great time doing other activities there was to do.

We visited Muskegon to see this museum and were not disappointed. Among many highlights, the Native American painting exhibit is superb even by New Mexico standards. This is one to drive a little ways to see. The general collection reflects a historical curation full of excellent good sense and sensibility. The Hopper, the Sisley, the Pisarro, and the Bonnard are... More

Anyone who travels to Muskegon or through it should take the time to visit our Muskegon Museum of Art. It is a Gem in a smaller town and compares to one in a bigger city.
