Large art museum with rotating exhibits, set on the lovely campus of Niagara University.. Easy walk through requiring about one hour. Niagara Falls art work was outstanding, capturing the power of the falls.

Cute little free museum located on the grounds of Niagara University. Has everything from Hudson River School to modern art. Picasso, Warhol, Grandma Moses and so much more. It is worth the trip.

Mostly modern art, we spent only 1/2 hour. Picasso paintings were not hung we were told, which was a disappointment. We found an unusual item in gift shop we bought to gift at reasonable price but nothing is outstanding in gift shop.

A lot of neat paintings and some that are art in the eye of the beholder. This is a quick stop that won't overload you or kill the day. Check it out if in the area.
