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.

Have been here many times, but this time was with out of town guests, including a baby. The staff couldn't wait to be helpful...getting us a stroller and someone always seemed to be around to help up and down steps. The Picasso exhibit was a little bit of a challenge as the baby was getting fussy....but it all worked out.... More

Second visit to Albright-Knox recently and still impressed by this gallery. I small but diverse collection in a space that is efficiently organized. Temporary exhibits are always good.

The Albright-Knox is a Buffalo institution and amazing. Summer is a great time to visit, but don't forget to check it out during the winter months too. An excellent gift shop with gifts for everyone from young children to adults.

Coming from the city, I am used to wonderful art museums. The Albright proved to be able to hold its own. The Picasso exhibit was informative and beautifully designed. The museum itself has a lot to offer. It is worth the visit.

A fine museum with an interesting permanent collection as well as a good offering of traveling exhibits. Easily largest enough to spend an afternoon. Would not break the bank for a family trip though much of the work would probably not interest young children. The art is well displayed and not placed on top of each other.

We actually went to see the current Picasso exhibit. It happened to be a First Friday, so the basic admission was free. We just had to pay for the Picasso exhibit itself. The AK houses a very nice permanent collection and the Picasso visit was really great. It's a shame there was no exhibition catalogue for it, though. We didn't... More

You don't have to be in NYC or Toronto to experience world class permanent collections and curated exhibitions.

Not a major art museum in physical size, the Albright Knox contains an amazing collection of world-class paintings. Works by Matisse, Warhol, Modigliani, Gauguin, Pollock, Renoir, Cezanne, Tissot van Gogh, Chagall and Dali. Four of ten paintings featured in ABSTRACT EXPRESSIONIST stamps issued by the US Postal Service are in the permanent collection at Albright Knox. Not to be missed!

This museum reminds me of the Prado in Madrid, Spain. Perfect size to spend the day. Excellent and notable permanent collection, and very thoughtful exhibitions, with an emphasis on contemporary art. The founders of the museum and the subsequent curators have built a very fine collection of "old" and new masters. The building, in Delaware Park overlooking the lake, is... More
