Was there for the Downton Abbey Exhibit, which was well organized. The exhibit was nicely organized and had information you can read as you move around. When we were there, it was not crowded which was nice. I pre-purchased tickets on Eventbrite, but tickets can be purchased at the museum. The museum was fairly small, but the art was great. With the Downtown Abbey exhibit, we were there for about an hour, which was nice since we went on a Saturday which happened to be admission free. Plenty of parking on their lot.

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.

This art museum drew us to Muskegon on a day visit! The art collection and the glass gallery are superb for a town of its size. We were so happy to see the works of Hopper, Bellows, Pissarro, Sisley, Bonnard, Winslow Homer, John Steuart Curry, Henry Ossawa Tanner, and Deborah Butterfield, plus the beautiful glass gallery with Tiffany and Steuben glass and works by Littleton, Chihuly, Lipofsky, and Toots Zinsky! The museum was safeguarded for COVID, requiring masks to be work and social distancing to be practiced, with plexiglas shields in place at the ticket desk and the info desks. Friendly staff! We enjoyed chatting with them several times as we strolled through the galleries. Thank you!!

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.

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.

Saw the glass exhibit. Spectacular. If you are reading from afar, this museum is one of Midwest’s jewels. They have a permanent collection of glass. A portion of it is on exhibit now. All their exhibits are interesting. They recently had Edward Curtis’s portraits - they also own one of the few complete sets! Edward Hopper, Bonnard, Homer, Whistler, Rodin, Pissarro, David Kroll and many more are part of their permanent collection as well. Always worth a stop.

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!
