Amazing mix of art (that I understand revolves frequently) in a contemporary light filled space that offers a break from the predictable. Perfect for a quick coffee and stroll to feed that spot you just didn’t know was lacking till you made it through. Well...More

This is a wonderful jewel and must visit for those who enjoy art in Kentucky. The museum has a flowing layout with exposed brick and that vintage building feel. The front desk was welcoming, explaining which exhibits were where. There is an elevator or stairs,...More

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

Loved that this museum was free and that the docents/staff were so nice. The museum consists of three levels, although I accidentally took the elevator up to the fourth level which is staff offices. The most memorable exhibit that I viewed was related to textiles...More

What fun exhibits we happened upon! One artist displayed environmental art and the other was titled something like movement of mixed mediums. Exhibits and gift shop offered plenty of eye candy and a half hour of entertainment. We'll be adding this as a stop every...More

I have wanted to visit since the recent remodel. They still are not fully finished. I enjoyed the art but I always wish the attendants would be friendlier. There was no eye contact or welcome smile. I almost felt as if I was inconveniencing them...More
