A truly splendid modern art collection in a beautiful neo-classical building. Check out the wonderful "Karma" sculpture outside the main building.

I grew up visiting the museum, but it’s been many years since I’ve been. I’d forgotten the overwhelming amount of art, the breathtaking beauty of the works of art. Fun trip with friends, stimulating terrific conversation. Everyone enjoyed the visit & agreed we need to...More

We had a 17 and 19 year old with us. They absolutely loved this museum. They enjoyed taking many pictures. The upstairs has great interactive exhibits. On a nice day it’s also great to take some really cool pictures right outside the museum.

Take a tour around the outside of the building before you go in-it's amazing! There are the beautiful old standbys in the gallery/museum but you can also enjoy the visiting/traveling exhibits too. They have year 'round outdoor exhibits and summer concerts too.

We are a well traveled couple. We have seen a lot of art. We’ve been to over 25 counties. I wanted to take my wife to show off what Buffalo had to offer. They say they only show 3% of the art in the collection...More
