I have gone several times with various friends of many ages. Always find something new to spark my interest. A very young friend (7) liked the scavenger hunt they offered.

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.

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.
