We had a 17 and 19 year old with us. They absolutely loved this museum. They enjoyed taking many pictures. The upstairs has great interactive exhibits. On a nice day it’s also great to take some really cool pictures right outside the museum.

This is my favorite art museum. They have so many interesting pieces on rotation, so whenever you go you see a bunch of new things (plus a handful of mainstays). Although it’s a modern art museum, they have more traditional pieces too. And as a...More

I am not an art expert, but in all honesty the only difference between these exhibits and a middle school art show is the students have to write a paper along with the art. I thought most of the material was terrible. It showed little...More

Take a tour around the outside of the building before you go in-it's amazing! There are the beautiful old standbys in the gallery/museum but you can also enjoy the visiting/traveling exhibits too. They have year 'round outdoor exhibits and summer concerts too.

The permanent collection on display is small but extremely high quality with superb examples of impressionists through minimalists. We were disappointed that the entire second floor was virtually closed as they were preparing for a new exhibit so, if you're looking for the "complete" visit,...More

A sunny day trip from Toronto was so worth it. The external grounds and building architecture is reminiscent of Washington DC. The permanent exhibits showed the best of abstraction expressionism...

The Albright-Knox holds what is arguably Pollock's masterpiece, "Convergence". I never fail to be impressed by it and until I retired had a large print of it hanging in my office. The original is 8 by 13 feet and is mesmerizing. The Albright has a...More
