Beautiful building with a small but excellent collection of great paintings. Lovely neighbourhood and very friendly staff. The museum represents an era when Buffalo was an industrial powerhouse with all that went along with that. The city is clearly reinvesting itself and we loved both the Gallery and our time in Buffalo.

With a collection of contemporarily aquired art dating back to the 1800s, the Albright-Knox is one of America's best museums in a mid-sized town.

The collection and exhibitions are on par with MOMA and The Tate Modern. If you love modern or contemporary art you must visit.

Visiting the Albright-Knox had long been on our to do list, and it did not disappoint. The gallery is located in an unexpectedly attractive area of the city. The architecture is quite impressive. The staff were unusually friendly and helpful. The locations were excellent for a smallish US city. We enjoyed the classic art collection. We were very impressed with... More

Beautiful museum with a fine collection of classic and modern art. - van Gogh, Mark Rothko, among others. There was an excellent exhibition of art by local high school students when I visited too. And the A/K Cafe is quite good.

Full disclosure, we are members of the AK. it houses a fine fine collection of art from all eras with emphasis on more modern art. It is just the right size for a gallery visit . You won't feel like its time to go before you finish seeing everything and the special exhibits are always stellar. The Picasso exhibit was... More

Thoughtfully displayed collection of art from early modern masters through contemporary artists - AK's regular collection is vast and varied and the envy of any art museum in the world. The museum itself has developed art that we walk through as well as amazing varieties of visiting exhibits.

The "Albright-Knox" as most of us locals refer to the superb museum is one of the few entities in Buffalo that are worth seeking out for a few--at least--hours on an open afternoon. Jackson Pollack's "Convergence", a few Clifford Stills, a Rothko or two and a splendid nationally renowned Abstract Expressionists-Collection will have you wondering: "THIS is Buffalo....?" It's almost... More
