fun fact, some of the art at the gallery was from George Eastman, what you see at his grand home is re-productions. Monet is here, some American history art. worth seeing. forget about cell phones, you get to talk to each other here!

First time in Rochester, solicited the opinion of a native, as to what to visit if one only had a couple of free hours in Rochester, their suggestion was the Memorial Art Gallery. Excellent suggestion and choice. I have visited numerous art museums in large cities (NYCity, Montreal, Boston, Paris, Berlin), but am always surprised by the little gems in smaller, mid-sized cities. The Memorial Art Gallery has small galleries ranging from the art of ancient Egypt, Greek-Romans period to African and Central/South America, American and European art starting around the 1500's to the present modern art artifacts, sculptors and paintings. You will find known artistic names like Rembrandt, Matisse to Andy Warhol and Jackson Pollock to lesser known artists such as John Frederick Kensett or Asher B. Durand. Had a totally enjoyable two hours with companion wondering through the galleries and grounds outside. Excellent gift shop, ample parking, all for a $14 per person fee.

Terrific regional spot--friendly, warm, inviting and stunning. A hidden gem. There is always something terrific and lively to see among the special exhibitions, and the permanent collection is encyclopedic, charming, and a true respite.

When I read the reviews here, I was a bit uncertain about what to expect. But upon visiting the gallery, I was taken aback by the breadth of its collection and the lovely venue in which it is housed. If you're an art lover and anywhere near Rochester, I would make tracks to this place. The galleries of American art are particularly impressive, but there are artifacts and art from all periods and all over the world here. I spent a lovely morning taking in the collection, but one could easily linger over the galleries for a day. Parking is close and easy.

Memorial Art Gallery has a well developed curriculum of activities and cultural events. There is so much to see in the galleries I find that I get saturated after about two hours. A membership allows you to 're enter at any time to fully appreciate the wonderful exhibitions.
