Excellent permanent collection that is frequently rotated, since it has the space to exhibit only a fraction of its outstanding collection. In addition, there are first class exhibits to visit, such as the recent Picasso: the Artist and His Models. This museum supports frequent visits. Excellent Café for lunch, as well.

We are members of the gallery (have been for years ) and especially enjoy going to see the special exhibitions and concerts at the gallery. Recently we went to see the Picasso exhibit and enjoyed it...however, at the check in desk no one mentioned that there were audio guides available. It never crossed our minds until we saw some people... More

The Albright-Knox Art Gallery is a haven for lovers of both modern and abstract art. However, they also have a rotation of their collection which includes works of impressionists and realists. The recent special traveling exhibit of Picasso was amazing. The docent who gave the tour made it interactive, asking those viewing what they saw in various works. It was... More

Awe inspiring with several rooms showing his paintings and sketches as well as a few of Picasso's contemporaries. The complimentary head phones provide brief and informative descriptions of the artwork... More

The Albright Knox is a national treasure. My husband and I just returned from the Picasso show there, it was excellent. It was remarkable to walk through the exhibit and see how many of the works were actually owned by the Albright Knox. Buffalo was very lucky to have such forward thinking citizens to champion this museum throughout the 20th... More

I attended the Picasso exhibit this past weekend and was reintroduced to how wonderful the Albright truly is. Prior to our set time, we had a chance to browse the permanent collection and I was able to linger near a few of my favorite pieces. The exhibit was well curated and truly delightful to attend. We always enjoy our time... More

Picasso and his Models was fabulous, presenting his art through his relationships ... surrounded by the work of his contemporaries, telling the story of the development of the styles of the period. Excellent organization of the show and management of those attending.

The Picasso exhibition gave us the opportunity to visit the museum. It is a nice small museum and the staff is very friendly. We look forward to being back for other upcoming exhibitions.

When for a wine and cheese tasting event and walked away amazed. So many pieces of art that you've seen in books that can't help but be impressed. Strange lay-out, but you'll be too busy looking at the art to worry it.
