“Not bad...”
Reviewed December 12, 2011

It's not horrible, but it's not the greatest art museum either. It's worth a visit at least once in your lifetime and definitely a nice little diversion if you have time to spare in Grand Rapids.

“Should have listened to the last review...”
Reviewed September 4, 2011

The only thing that I can add different from the last review is that the price has gone up to $8 now. The architectural design for the building is the only thing good the place has for it. The "art collection" and "exhibits" are pathetic and nearly non-existent. Thouroughly disappointed that I wasted my money on a so called "art museum"

“Awesome building in the center of Grand Rapids”
Reviewed August 28, 2010

Although not very big, this museum is very cool. I am not a big art fan, however my wife and I checked this out and were quite impressed. Cool designed LEED building. If you have a some time to kill in Grand Rapids, this is highly recommended.

“Really impressive small city art museum.”
Reviewed July 10, 2010

It would be worth while to go to this museum just to enjoy the architecture, which represents the state of the art in modern museum design, but we were also surprised by the quality of the collection. Definitely worth spending a few hours here if you are visiting Grand Rapids.
