The Butler is a gem in Youngstown. Take your time and enjoy all the different displays and artwork. Have a snack at the cafe. A very relaxing way to spend the day!

We are frequent visitors to the Butler Museum of American Art. New exhibits are always exciting but the permanent collection is just as wonderful to experience. Docents are very knowledgeable and friendly. Field trips from local schools are a must and catering/events are fantastic.
