I've been to plenty of museums that focus on one particular style of art, but I can't say I've ever been in one like the Grohmann Museum where the focus is on one subject: work. Most of the art is done in the realism style,...More

Museum has a very masculine feel with deep blues and burnt reds. Goes well with the industrial art work. Painting, photograph and sculpture are all represented. Medicine, mining and construction just a couple of the themes represented in the art. Be hard pressed to name...More

This museum has an amazing number of paintings of great quality. But what I take issue with is that it is so Euro-centric. I understand that the exhibit is one person's collection and he has the right to collect what he is chooses. But the...More

This was the perfect museum to visit...taking less than 90 minutes to tour. The staff was very informative. The museum itself was very comfortable and the art is delightful.
