Loved the recent stained glass exhibit. I should go here more often. They have a lovely gift shop as well, and educational programs. It's a small museum, but it does have some excellent art work and organ concerts as well.

It's an OK Art Museum. Worth a visit. What else is there to say? Lots of good art. Lots of stupid displays. Place is usually empty because who goes to art museums anyhow? They have some uber expensive paintings - Monet etc. If you are really bored and it is raining out give it a try.

This is not the Louve, but it is a pleasnt afternoon family outing if you enjoy viewing art. There is a modest entry fee and exhibits change pretty frequently. Located in downtown Rochester area. Free parking.

I have only been to one other art gallery and that is in Toronto. The MAG is a great place with many works to see. It gives you the feel of a larger gallery but in a much smaller package. Each time I manage to come here I manage to see something that I didn't take much note of the time before. Definitely worth seeing if you can fit it into your day.
