I hadn't been to Roanoke for a dozen years, so the museum was a lovely surprise, and general admission was free! This is a gem, considering the fact that Roanoke is not a large city. The exterior architecture and the lobby area are stunning--I loved the sun shining down through the "tapestries", sending rainbows all over the walls. I toured... More

The Taubman is a great museum for a city the size of Roanoke. Saw a special exhibit today entitled :AMERICAN IMPRESSIONISM IN THE GARDEN. Excellent!

I was so excited to find there was such a great art museum close to Blacksburg! We had a wonderful visit, exploring the collections for a couple of hours.

The building itself is breathtaking, aside from the art exhibits. The constantly changing collection of exhibits could consume hours. A must-visit!

Roanoke needed a large-scale museum that featured all genres of art. The artwork changes often, so you don't have to visit the same exhibit over and over. Always a good time!

We (mom and son, age 7) attended one of the museum's "late nights"--a special Friday after hours. We enjoyed the live music and Follicular, a fantastic current exhibit centered on hair. Follicular is an amazing exhibit for reflection during Black History Month. Currently, there is also a very engaging folk art exhibit. Entry is free with special charges for the... More

My favorite display was Allison Pack. Very beautiful metal work. My other favorite was the purse display right next to Allison Pack. Really though, the entire museum was airy, bright abf full of interesting work.

Very pleasant day. Workings change often so you can visit without always seeing the same things. Great and informative staff. Food on site, but didn't' check it out.
