“Great permanent collection of an excellent impressionist artist upstairs”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

William Glackens' impressionist paintings enjoy a delightful permanent presence in the Museum upstairs, and present a wonderful counterpoint to the often modern collections that come and go. There is also a lovely reproduction of a room in his home with some of his paintings exhibited there. If you like impressionism, you may not be familiar with this artist. The exhibit of his works makes it worth the trip, regardless of what else may be the star attraction of the day.

“It's What You Would Expect of an Art Museum”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

Nice smaller museum. The current traveling exhibit is a collection of old master's paintings and tapestries from the Renaissance and Baroque period from the Uffizi Gallery, very interesting. I takes a morning or short afternoon to see the whole museum.

“Small but nice”

Not a NY or Paris museum but nice for south Fl. Near downtown Ft Lauderdale. Reasonable price and a good rainy Sunday outing.

“MOA OF FORT LAUDERDALE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2012

Constantly improving and offering interesting exhibits it is an important destination in South Florida. In addition, there is a large comfortable theater on the premises and many meetings and community events take place there. The museum staff does everything possible to make a memorable visit for you.
