“A surprise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

We only went to this museum because we were offered a combo ticket at the Corning Museum. But it was a great little gem of a museum! They had an amazing collection of Clyde Aspevig paintings.

A wonderful collection of Western Art in a small museum. Worth a visit. Easy to walk around in the museum. The museum showcases classic to contemporary pieces.

“Surprising!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

I had no idea so many famous works of Western art (such as the classic "End of the Trail" sculpture) were in this museum. The building is beautiful and the art is well worth seeing. Even the gift shop is worth the trip.

“Great place to visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

They have a nice backpack program, and kids receive a prize when they complete it. We were during a holiday even and they were making little dolls, both my girls and my boys enjoyed making them. My girls took them everywhere and played with them for a long time.
