  • The museum is under going major construction so the collection of art and artifacts is limited. It is still a place that should be visited when in Lawrence. They have some extremely interesting...

  • Located on KU campus. Parking is a nightmare if you don't want to have to pay. KU is apparently unaware of a thing called hospitality for visitors. And half of the museum was closed for repairs. But.....  more

  • This museum has a great permanent display and if you go on Friday the curators can pull works from their archive. I have been coming here since I was a small child and it’s always nice to see what they have in exhibition. Their permanent display has changed since the last time I came and I was pleasantly surprised to see some things I haven’t seen before.
  • Nice museum which has been updated. Today was there grand reopening, it was so nice to see many people show up. They have several exhibits of various types of art. Parking is in the back, free parking on weekends.
  • Great place to see a huge world famous collection of awesome art! Lots of free activities and creative events! Take a walk also around their backyard bash! 🎢👍👏 more of my experience at IG account @universitygalleries
  • The Spencer Museum has recently been completely redesigned, and is absolutely amazing... both the space and the art that is on display.
  • No entry fee, but it would be nice to donate a few dollars to support this nice museum. Parking is $10. It does not have lots of art works per artist or period, but has few selections for all different kinds. So great museum for a survey of art.
