  • Good permanent collection, good signage, and excellent Karl Bodmer exhibit (I think until May 1). We stayed an extra day here for this & were not disappointed.

  • Beautiful. Though provoking. This provides a very enlightening experience when looking for something to do in the Omaha area.

  • This is an awesome place and a real gem in the city of Omaha. Not many cities of similar size can claim to have a venue of such nice spaces and pieces of art. Many of the galleries are situated connecting to the main courtyard. In the middlle of the courtyard you'll find a beautifully tiled fountain and greenery. This means you can hear running water from most places in the main gallery, a great little design feature. They don't have a ton of stuff but what they do have is well curated and we'll presented. Among the highlights are paintings from Monet, ancient Greek vases, some excellent Asian statuary and a large wooden screen that's been intricately carved and lacquered. The American galleries are excellent as well. I also don't want to leave out the early American Western stuff, including Navajo beadworks. The galleries themselves are neat spaces featuring solid colors with a couple feet of marble at the base, different in every room.
  • Was a fun museum. I loved the blown glass and the Indian beaded art! Glad I got to see it before they close for 2 years.
  • Great museum to spend a day with family. Spectacular architecture. Marvelous collection of art from different times and regions. Not too big, not too small. Perfect to spend a day to appreciate the collection. Museum also offers place where children can draw, craft, and express their imagination through interactive stations.
  • The Joslyn Art Museum is the gem of Omaha. Currently, entry is free due to a gracious grant. They have an outstanding collection with pieces from the antiquities to modern artists. They also have examples from world renown artists such as DeGas, Pollock, Rembrant, Warhol, The Grecian Omaha Painter, and countless others. ***Please note, the Joslyn will be closed for a two year construction and renovation project starting May 2, 2022.***
  • This is the place to check out all of the Mid Century Modern architecture. What a wonderful free asset to our community. Closing soon for renovations. Go check it out!
