We actually went to see the current Picasso exhibit. It happened to be a First Friday, so the basic admission was free. We just had to pay for the Picasso exhibit itself. The AK houses a very nice permanent collection and the Picasso visit was really great. It's a shame there was no exhibition catalogue for it, though. We didn't... More

You don't have to be in NYC or Toronto to experience world class permanent collections and curated exhibitions.

Not a major art museum in physical size, the Albright Knox contains an amazing collection of world-class paintings. Works by Matisse, Warhol, Modigliani, Gauguin, Pollock, Renoir, Cezanne, Tissot van Gogh, Chagall and Dali. Four of ten paintings featured in ABSTRACT EXPRESSIONIST stamps issued by the US Postal Service are in the permanent collection at Albright Knox. Not to be missed!

This museum reminds me of the Prado in Madrid, Spain. Perfect size to spend the day. Excellent and notable permanent collection, and very thoughtful exhibitions, with an emphasis on contemporary art. The founders of the museum and the subsequent curators have built a very fine collection of "old" and new masters. The building, in Delaware Park overlooking the lake, is... More

We attended a jazz concert performed by some of the best jazz musicians in the Buffalo area. The music was great as the standing ovation attested to and the Albright Knox Art Gallery provided the perfect setting. An added benefit was being able to tour the Albright following the concert. The rich history of Buffalo during its hey day are... More

Hi Phillip: It sounds like you may have attended a jazz concert at the Buffalo History Museum, which is right next door to the Albright-Knox Art Gallery. We are glad you had a great experience at our neighboring museum. The Albright-Knox also hosts jazz concerts throughout the year as part of our Art of Jazz series, The Buffalo News Summer... More

We had an event at the Albright-Knox and as part of that we were given a half hour tour of the entrance area of the gallery. Our docent was excellent and based on her tour we will return to the gallery for a more in-depth tour in the near future.

The contempory/modern art collection as well as the venue is exceptional. It is not a large gallery yet it has impressive works on display. A lovely little cafe has coffee and light bites to be enjoyed after leisurely browsing! A definite must see while visiting Buffalo!

The building itself is a must-see. And the folks who work there are VERY nice and VERY helpful. A lot of modern art - which really isn't my thing - but if modern art is YOUR thing... you'll really enjoy the museum. The first Friday of every month offers free admission so if you're around and available on a "free"... More

My husband and I visited the Albright Knox Art Gallery for the first time over the weekend and really enjoyed it. The main collection is organized in order of the time the gallery added it to its collection. There are some wonderful works of art, including magnificent works on the grounds. This gallery and Buffalo's museum neighbourhood are well worth... More
