This art museum appeals to the young and old. Haven't been in 2 years but the upgrades are nice. The area for the kids to do their own art and read was a nice added touch to the museum. My family enjoyed that area the most. Beautiful grounds to take pictures.

This is a wonderful place to visit - even if you aren't an art lover like me. They have such interesting exhibits that change often.

Free admission, except for special exhibits (which was a very reasonable $10). Very nice outdoor sculpture area. The Chihuly is in a great location. Wonderful for kids/families. The cafe was great. Good selection and great prices. Also has a very nice gift museum shop. WIsh I had more time to spend there!

The building is beautiful and the collection is impressive for a city the size of Omaha. There is no charge for the permanent collection. A real gem.
