We are frequent visitors to the Butler Museum of American Art. New exhibits are always exciting but the permanent collection is just as wonderful to experience. Docents are very knowledgeable and friendly. Field trips from local schools are a must and catering/events are fantastic.

This little gem was fantastic! I loved every square inch of this place. The museum has a beautiful selection of art and some very impressive collections! You must see Abraham Lincoln when you visit. I will be making this an annual trip from now on!

I have visited here with a date to view the collection and I was surprised at how diverse the collection is. Everything from historic oils to very interesting and eclectic sculptures. A must see in downtown Youngstown Ohio.
