Reviewed 10 August 2017 via mobile

Made a quick detour to this local art museum, and sadly, it left us wishing it offered more. The 20 or so pieces by Grant Wood were impressive, but the rest of the displays were quickly skipped through. I know it is hard to acquire and curate fine art, and kudos to the staff for offering free admission during the summer months, but, the beautiful building brings expectations of something more special than that which is offered. I hate to rate this average, but we were done in 45 minutes, and left wondering why there were not more Grant Woods to display?

Small but impressive museum with high quality art. Very extensive collection of Grant Wood. Many other quality artists as well. Would certainly visit again if in the area.

Great Museum, had the chance to visit during the Museum Week this June, great exhibits, the offer tours, or you can go on your own, the gift shop is full of gifts related to the items in exhibition, among other very nice gifts. The remodeled Museum after the flood is amazing, beautiful.
