A modern art gallery with some really cool art pieces. You can walk this gallery in a couple of hours and they have a lovely cafe for you when you get tired, nice pleasant staff. They have elevators and stairs just a few.

I was impressed by the Albright-Knox. They have a small collection featuring numerous heavyweights of modern art. Rothko, Pollock, Van Gogh, Monet, Picasso, and Matisse to name a few. I tend to enjoy small museums like this, since you don't have to slog through a hundred rooms to feel like you saw everything. The well-curated collection has a good sampling... More

A very nice collection with plenty of benches to sit and muse. You're given a map so you can not only easily make your way around the museum, but also can wander chronologically through the exhibits. There was a fascinating exhibit by Joan Linder called Operation Sunshine. It gave me chills, made me angry, sad and resolved to leave the... More

The museum sits on a very picturesque hill overlooking Hoyt Lake. We took a walk around the lake, then decided to climb the steps to check it out, on the recommendation of a friend. Trouble was, that back door isn't an entrance. We walked around the building on a path and admired the outdoor installations. Walked right past the entrance... More

I must say, for the price I was expecting a lot more out of the gallery. Nevertheless, they had an incredible spread and variety throughout the building that's beauty almost exceeds the art itself. I went during the Monet expo and was greeted with a friendly smile. The woman who sold us our tickets was very knowledgeable in regards to... More

This is a beautifully designed gallery housed in a historic building that is worth the visit in itself. Balla's "Dynamism of a dog on a leash" was a favourite -- a magnet depicting the painting is now displayed on our fridge at home! The outside had a couple of very interesting installations as well, including a canoe sculpture and a... More

This museum holds a good permanent collection and the special exhibit when we visited was also nice. You can easily finish viewing the museum in a few hours.

An excellent collection of works. Wonderful to see Balla's painting 'Dynamism of a dog on a leash' and Pollock's 'Convergence'. The works in this section of the gallery along are worth the visit. There is no padding in this collection, every piece is remarkable. Highly recommend visiting if in or near Buffalo, or making a holiday to Buffalo to see... More
