  • The Gallery is lovely. We were not aware however, that the main building is closed for renovations/installation. Our fault probably for not checking. It meant that we only got to visit the new section...  more »
  • Loved seeing the exhibit “ We the People” Intriguing work by contemporary artists in the thought provoking work. Enjoyed Sol LeWitt’s wall drawing installation in the hallway before walking into that ...  more »

  • Karen is the best! I attend the monthly Veteran events, and she always puts so much care into the tour and activities. That being said, all of the staff are so welcoming and helpful. Add to that, the offer new and amazing art, constantly. It's like a new gallery every time I step in there! If you haven't visited, add this to your list of places to see! The upstairs exhibits were fantastic. Can always learn something new.The Ralph Wilson exhibit, the immigrant and people exhibit all were so engrossing. We stopped for an hour before dinner and stayed 2 1/2 hours and didn't realize where the time went. Super!!
  • Such a beautiful museum. Very interesting pieces of art. The day I went I didn't know it was their annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony. The admission was pay what you choose. They sang carols and we sang along and it was actually really fun. The rows of the auditorium sang a line of 12 Days of Christmas, one line per row and I liked that it was interactive. There is artwork outside the museum as well. As a Buffalo State College student you can get discounts to the museum.
