Owner description: A collection of American art from 1840 to the present.

The collections and galleries are larger and more interesting than we expected to see. The docent led tours of the main collection and the special French Masterworks photographs were very enriching - highly recommended! We especially enjoyed learning about Howard Pyle, illustrator, and seeing the Andrew Wyeths, Sloans, Hopper, and modern art. All FREE on Sundays!

Lovely building and the setting with sculpture garden in the back.
Don't expect to see priceless work of arts from old masters here but they have pretty good and interesting collections.
Admission is expensive for an art museum of its size except Sunday when it is free.

It was different in it's architecture and focus. There were surprises of famous masterpieces here and
there. Really interesting and inviting. We loved the café, too, for lunch. Plan to be there a few hours.

This is a surprisingly good and interesting small museum. Some wonderful paintings by 19th century/early 20th century illustrators. Definitely worth a visit

For a small art museum, DAM has a strong collection, sculpture garden, good changing exhibits and terrific programs for kids. Don't miss it if you're nearby. Free on Sundays
