I was dissapointed when I visited several years ago but tried again. This time not having to pay an admission free really helped. Crafts from permanent collection on top floor were disappointing. But video installations on second floor were very good. Gift shop still the...More

This visit, the third floor was closed and the second floor was completely filled with someone's thoughts that the Beatle's White album cover could never be over done. They were wrong. Ad nauseum quantity of the White Album plastered and written on by previous owners....More

The KMAC Museum on Louisville's "Museum Row" has two floors of contemporary art, and a gift shop on the street level which showcases "Kentucky Made" gifts. The admission is FREE, so do stop in for a quick "look...see".

The newly renovated museum is open and full of eye-candy. The exhibitions included primarily modern art and the folk art was presented with a modern vibe. Take time to read the descriptions of the art works. The amount of things on display is just right--not...More

Easy to find and navigate and FREE. Exhibits were forgettable and that should never be a word used with contemporary art. I can't even explain why. In comparison, 21C (just a few doors away) is much edgier. The gift shop here was lovely and the...More

Really nice art museum located on W. Main, one of the more historical areas of the city. Museum is not large, but the exhibits are well done and the staff is friendly. We really liked the exhibit about threads and textiles but I believe we...More
