The permanent collection of 20th century American art is excellent, with very informative brochures for each period. The two temporary exhibits of lndiana artists were also fine.

Older building with many art pictures throughout. Take the elevator and check out the displays upstairs. Only wish they would have had the other rooms finished while I was there. A must see and it also is FREE!

Without a doubt the finest art museum in west central Indiana and west central IL. The art changes on a regular basis and is an impressive collection. Do not miss this Terre Haute gem. BTW it is FREE!

As other reviewers have already said, it is a small art museum filled with delightful finds and at the right cost...free! There are works by famous artists (Grant Wood for example) and not so famous artists in an eclectic setting. When visiting Terre Haute it is well worth an hour of your time. Located in downtown Terre Haute you get bragging righs for saying you were at the "crossroads of America".

This small two story art museum is huge in quality. I loved the pieces they have and they way they grouped them based on the era. They have pamphlets near the art that has pictures of the art plus other information about the era. Kiddy corner from the Clabber Girl museum, also free with a requested donation of $5.00 per adult. I viewed all the art than made certain I paid on the way out. I am happy to help support their museum, please stop by and check it out. I love the Indiana Impressionist area.
