The Albright -Knox is big and old, with the old wing undergoing renovation. The newer wing is inviting and accessible with a good modern collection edging into contemporary. The cafe is very good.

I live in NYC, where going to an art museum is a contact sport, so the Albright-Knox was a real treat. It's a good-sized, blissfully uncrowded gallery with some amazing art. I still can't believe that I could put my face about two inches away...More

This art gallery is a little bit unexpected for Buffalo as it has a decent collection of modern art as well as some older stuff as well. A large part of the gallery was shut down when we went so we just got to see...More

It appears the people in charge know little to nothing about art. Very poor displays and some poor taste on what is good art. It was better years ago and the halls were filled with interesting art of all types of mediums. Really bad and...More

This is a wonderful art museum in a fabulous venue. It is not that large, so you can easily see everything in a couple hours, more or less depending on how much time you want to spend with each piece. The exhibits change every several...More
