Building is an architectural treat in and of itself. Art in all forms abound. Lovely statues, various mediums of art forms: watercolor, mosaics, oils, pastels, etc. Some archeological pieces from cultures no longer in existence. Tours offered to anyone whom wishes to partake of the scenery w/dialogue from the staff. Very reasonable entrance fees for all ages.

The Joslyn Art Museum was my favorite stop in Omaha. The building itself is a work of art and just beautiful. The museum is not that large but offers a wonderful collection of art along with beautiful gardens. A great place to spend an afternoon!

It's beautiful from the outside--the newer section blends beautifully with the original section. The atrium sculptures are fabulous. There's a very nice cafe in the atrium with a lovely menu. I really enjoyed my lunch. The collection is outstanding! I was surprised and impressed. The contemporary section is comparatively small but very interesting. There's a very nice children's area too.

If you thought you had to go to the Getty Museum or the Boston Museum of Fine Arts to find great art, you're mistaken. Check out Omaha... Here they have works by great American artists such as Mary Cassatt, Thomas Moran, Winslow Homer, and Thomas Hill. Just seeing the portrait by John Singer Sargent is worth the visit to this... More

A fabulous combination of old and new art mixed in with locals and history. I found myself thinking the building itself was a piece of art.You must have pie out of the cafeteria and visit the amazing gift shop. Kind and friendly Docents. Loved my afternoon. One time took the stairs and next time rode in the same elevator used... More

Beautiful building; hard to believe it's that old. Free parking. Nice, varied collection that won't take long to see (2 hours, tops). And free entry. There's a box for donations in the atrium but nobody is pushing for money. Don't forget the sculpture garden outside. In the middle is one that's actually an ankle-depth pool. Apparently at first the usual... More

The Joslyn museum is located west of downtown Omaha on Dodge Street. A nice sized museum that has a number of nice pieces of art on permanent display and different traveling exhibits. A beautiful Chihuly glass structure on display in the atrium. There is also a gift shop and café on site.

This museum has a very nice collection, including modern, medieval, and European art. What I really liked, though, was its western-art collection (meaning paintings from the Old West, like cowboys and Native Americans). Not all museums have such a collection, so this was really a pleasure and interesting to see.
