Their selection of art is superb for a city this size. /the museum is very well designed. If in Lincoln and like art don't miss the Sheldon!

This gallery is a great place for kids of all ages. Located on the University of Nebraska Lincoln campus this gallery features both a permanent display of their collection and a gallery that displays regional and international artists. If you are lucky you may even be able to attend a concert in their beautiful auditorium.

Collection never disappoints. Some staff could be more friendly towards new non-white or international visitors.

If they have a cool exhibit (which rarely happens in Lincoln) you may actually enjoy it. Otherwise it's very small and the art pices are not many. I guess they are trying to nurture art there but it all pales in Nebraska if it's not American football. One doesn't go Nebraska to see art. It's a football state.

I worked as an intern and as a docent at this museum during college. I loved it! I have been back many times since then and highly recommend it to everyone! When you go to Lincoln to attend a football game, or for any other reason, please stop at the Sheldon Museum. It's a beautiful, quiet building with great art - a wonderful collection of American art and other pieces as well. The gardens have neat sculptures too. A Jewel of Lincoln!
