Small but surprising museum! Dali portraits of Old Testament figures are simple and powerful. The museum's core, though, is Fernando Gallego's alter pieces: astonishingly modern and emotional; could spend several hours just contemplating in one room.

The U of A Museum of Art has a small, but excellent collection, especially Medieval art. They regularly run special exhibits which are always well done

With a wide-ranging collection that far outreaches mere teaching needs, this place is a real surprise. It has a multi-piece Castilian Renaissance altar piece sequence and one of the finest Rothkos I have ever seen, also a bequest from sculptor Jacques Lifschitz, that includes several...More
