I visited the art museum today with my mother and son. I had such a great time. The staff were so kind and friendly and helpful. They all had smiles. The museum was clean and the art was stunning. Thank you for making our Sunday a memorable one.

There were two exhibits that I really found interesting that will only on display until August 6. Tom Burckhardt's large work titled "Full Stop" is made entirely of cardboard. Local artist John Douglas Powers is featured with probably the noisiest art work you will ever hear--I would be surprised if it isn't ringing in museum workers heads as they leave... More

While the museum itself isn't the biggest it does have some larger interesting displays and a small room of miniatures. Staff was very pleasant and helpful

KMA frequently changes its exhibitions often of local talent. Make sure you check out what is out on display as otherwise you might be surprised as to how good the local high school seniors are! Actually not that bad!

This is a great museum. We loved the miniature doll exhibition. We went on an opening and enjoyed some snacks etc. The exhibits are great. The building is interesting, the space is clean and exciting.

What is not to love about a free museum featuring local and visiting exhibits?! This place is great! Also there is a rather nice gift shop on the top floor.
