Right when we got there rude were unwelcoming and rude. The special Native American art was my favorite. Every thing was nice except the staff. There is a little kid center so That was entertaining for the kids.

Nice building and nice staff but not much art to see, especially if you're not a fan of contemporary art. There was a special Native American exhibit the day we went, and it was pretty disturbing. Apparently it's a popular venue for wedding receptions, etc.

We didn't expect an extensive museum for a town the size of Fargo, and this museum is not large. However, it is very well done with a large selection of interesting pieces. We were really impressed with the watercolor exhibit. The day we visited, it...More

I was more impressed with the building than the pieces of art. The investment in the museum seems out of place for Fargo. Very impressive.
