Don't be put off by the exterior. The building looks like a bunch or metal welded together from a wrecked spaceship, and every time we travel and people learn we are from Roanoke they ask us about this building. There is quite a division here amongst locals, those who like its "artistic" appearance, and those who think it was a... More

My husband and I participated in a free, 11o'clock tour of the museum. It was wonderful. The docent was friendly, knowledgable and delightful. She gave of tons of information about the museum without the tour feeling ostentatious or stuffy. We had a blast!

This is really a great museum. A beautifull collection with diversity. The room dedicated to George Washington is special. They even provide magnifying glasses to take a closer look on details. But top of the bill are the two in situ installations. One made of 70.000 coffee stirring devices and another made with a sewing machine on water soluble paper... More

We visited the museum for the first time in a few years in order to see the Norman Rockwell exhibit before it was packed up. The collection was amazing and so well produced. As an American, I was very familiar with Rockwell's work, but the exhibit brought it together with depth and breadth. The standing and changeable exhibits in the... More

What a beautiful art museum the Taubman is. I liked the graciousness of the staff and the guards. I liked the way the rooms were laid out. I liked the written explanations for each piece. I especially liked the George Washington room, the new acquisitions area, and the changing exhibition with Jonathan Brilliant's installation made of coffee stirrers and sleeves... More

Stumbled across the museum on our first trip to Roanoke. Staff was so friendly. Exhibits were wonderful and the observation deck added a photo opportunity that just made the trip.

Genius on display, what a wonderful exhibit - sadly it is leaving our area very soon. Up close & personal, poignant because much of the audio was from his son and the personal snapshots that give glimpses of the man. Representative of birds vast productivity, covering many years. Very happy to have gone and experienced!

I don't go to this museum enough. Went to check out the Norman Rockwell exhibit. Very well done. Want to go back and check out the exhibits they have on hand all the time. The building is beautiful. A must see.
