They have an interactive family area and children's back pack tours along with computers for kids to play on. For the back pack tours. Ask at the front desk and you will be guided to the desk to check out your pack. Follow the directions with your children for a fun introduction to art.

Art for all tastes in one of the country's most beautiful (pink marble and granite) settings. Remarkable collection of art from the American West and a wide range of exhibits from traditional European to modern art an other traveling exhibitions.

Very nice for a moderate sized art museum. Easy to get through it fairly quick, doesn't compare to say the Louve but this is Omaha not Paris. They have frequent special exhibits that are historical and informative. Probably not for real young children.

This GREAT art gallery has been around a long time, but is constantly changing and a must see! Besides the wonderful exhibits, they hold many events throughout the year. Had a really good lunch, and their catering has always been excellent. I miss going often since I moved, but put it on the top of my list when I am... More

The Joslyn Art Museum and grounds are wonderful. This museum has interesting collections of modern, American and European masters. Its western-art collection is especially noteworthy as is the history behind each of the various artists. While not a large museum, it is certainly a great place to spend at least several hours.
