A very beautiful museum that is an extension of the Castellani Collection of art/artifacts. Today we saw art from the past featuring Niagara Falls in various phases through the years.

Large art museum with rotating exhibits, set on the lovely campus of Niagara University.. Easy walk through requiring about one hour. Niagara Falls art work was outstanding, capturing the power of the falls.

Cute little free museum located on the grounds of Niagara University. Has everything from Hudson River School to modern art. Picasso, Warhol, Grandma Moses and so much more. It is worth the trip.

Modern/contemporary art always turns out to be “hit or miss” for me. When it comes to such art, some works make me roll my eyes, yet others are so clever I can’t get over it. Bottom line, I appreciate creativity so I’ll seek that out...More

Mostly modern art, we spent only 1/2 hour. Picasso paintings were not hung we were told, which was a disappointment. We found an unusual item in gift shop we bought to gift at reasonable price but nothing is outstanding in gift shop.

A lot of neat paintings and some that are art in the eye of the beholder. This is a quick stop that won't overload you or kill the day. Check it out if in the area.
