This is a beautiful and well-appointed museum with a lot to see. My husband and I went an hour before closing and we were one of maybe 6 patrons inside. Because of the lack of crowd, we were able to see everything within the hour. It was our first visit, and we enjoyed it. I would recommend that people check... More

Very attractive museum with interesting art work, especially the Native American pieces. My sister and I spent a couple of hours enjoying the museum, shopping in the gift shop, and enjoying the cafe.

A beautiful place to visit to relax and view masterpieces you have seen in the history books. There is a wide range of artworks from primitive to contemporary.

The main building housing this museum was a 1931 gift from Sarah Joslyn in memory of her husband, a very successful Omaha business man. The building, especially the Fountain Court, is an Art Deco jewel. The collection is typical of most smaller city collections, a few masterworks, supported by a number of second tier pieces. The Rembrandt, Pollock and several... More

Having been to MOMA in New York City recently, we went to the Joclyn with low expectations. But we we're quickly reminded that this is a first rate art museum. From an ample array of Masters to modern to special exhibits, this is a wonderful place to enjoy art.

This is one of my favorite places in Omaha and very grateful for Sarah Joslyn and her dedication to the people of Omaha by building this awesome memorial to her husband. If you haven't been to the Joslyn, you're missing out on the best art collections and exhibits that Nebraska has to offer.

The Joslyn has a nice core collection which is nicely augmented by special showings. The museum building alone is worth a visit.

Arrived late Thursday when museum is open until 8 pm and has reduced admission fee. Sheila Hicks weaving exhibit was extraordinary. Spent time walking through the sculpture garden. Building itself is interesting. Not too far a walk from downtown area. Special smaller museum worth a visit.
