This is a very nice museum. Especially during Art Prize !! Free admission during Art Prize. Lots of space to enjoy the art from all angles. It is located right down town Grand Rapids, makes it easy to take in the other sites.

The museum was in between exhibits on the 2nd floor (there are 3 floors) so they charged us less than normal to get in. It is a smaller art museum in general, so with only 2 floors, we took about an hour to walk around. They have many nice pieces of art, and some from Art Prize, so I would... More

The best place to view local art and has great exhibits. The best time to go is during Art Prize! The GRAM is one of the largest locations for Art Prize.

The GRAM is a great little art museum. With two opportunities for free entry weekly too, anyone can go and enjoy themselves. Most of the exhibits are excellent.

I visit the museum at least 3 or 4 times a year with my granddaughters. The special exhibits draw us there and the permanent collection keeps us going back. The gift shop is wonderful for special gifts for special people.

Great way to spend a couple of hours. Interesting art work and doesn't take long to walk through. Worth the stop if you have time.

This is a first rate museum. Staff are over the top wonderful. Location is great. Architecture is great. However, and perhaps it is me. When contrasted to the old GR Art Museum this one does not have the seasoned classical art museum feel. Yes, of course it has the modern art museum feel but the size prohibits a full experience....
