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.

Enjoyed the collection from top to bottom. The gift shop was very nice. The building is a work of art all by itself.. Omaha is fortunate to have such a fine art museum and it is free!

A classic Art Deco treasure with an interesting history. Nice collections from a wide variety of eras and artists. The price is definitely right and a great way to spend a couple hours.

This castle is as amazing as castles in Ireland. The architecture is breathtaking. It is definitely a place to you should stop and see. We didn't get to go in because there was a wedding, but the outside alone was well worth stopping to see.

Amazing art and a wonderful building. Near downtown, so free parking lot parking is amazing. The art showcases change often, so check the website for the new exhibit.

This is a comprehensive art museum. There aren't many selections from each historic period but the selections they have are of high quality with interesting descriptions of each period. Also, the soup in the cafe is very tasty. The museum is definitely worth a visit.

When in Omaha, a visit to the Joslyn Art Museum should be part of your itinerary. Museum was opened in 1931 in memory of her late husband. It's an impressive building constructed mainly of marble and there's an interesting collection of art in multiple rooms.

From Indian art and bead work to Monet and the Dutch school of fine portraits, it displays them all. A beautiful fountain outside in a sculpture garden is complimented by another, very different nouveau art fountain in the middle of the museum. I'm a big fan of Chahuilly's glass works and the have two 2-3 story glass sculptures of his.... More

This is the place to see a Chihuly for FREE. The sculpture is located at the atrium and the admission to the museum is free year round.

One would not expect to find a nice collection of renisanace art in Omaha Nebraska but here it is. Great place, interesting collection and a beautiful building. The sculpture garden at the entry is another treat to be enjoyed.
