A great museum!

Such a nice surprise! A beautiful building that houses a Rembrandt, a Renoir and many other great works of art. So nice that admission is free.

Art for all tastes in one of the country's most beautiful (pink marble and granite) settings. Remarkable collection of art from the American West and a wide range of exhibits from traditional European to modern art an other traveling exhibitions.

Very nice for a moderate sized art museum. Easy to get through it fairly quick, doesn't compare to say the Louve but this is Omaha not Paris. They have frequent special exhibits that are historical and informative. Probably not for real young children.

This GREAT art gallery has been around a long time, but is constantly changing and a must see! Besides the wonderful exhibits, they hold many events throughout the year. Had a really good lunch, and their catering has always been excellent. I miss going often since I moved, but put it on the top of my list when I am... More

The Joslyn Art Museum and grounds are wonderful. This museum has interesting collections of modern, American and European masters. Its western-art collection is especially noteworthy as is the history behind each of the various artists. While not a large museum, it is certainly a great place to spend at least several hours.

Visiting an art museum with children is a bit daunting, but this place is different. This museum has a great collection including a restored Rembrandt and a fun digital art exhibit. We were followed around by security because our 5yr old twins were with us (which I understand as we had the only children in the gallery at the time).... More

I have been to some amazing museums around the world, including the Louvre. But this local gem always amazes me. They have a great collection and a family friendly atmosphere. It's a place I can take my kids to expose them to the masters as well as a variety of different types of art. And now it's FREE admission!!

The museum has great galleries of older European artists. Well-known American artists of the 18th thru 20th century are in the collections. American artists such as Karl Bodmer and others would provide a great visual history lesson of American. It would be worth going to the Joslyn just for the outdoor sculpture exhibits which kids would enjoy. The museum is... More
