Description
First opening its doors in 1931, the Joslyn Art Museum has acquired an abundant collection of fine works of art from across the globe, including Greek pottery, Renaissance and Baroque pieces, ... Read more
nineteenth century French works, eighteenth and nineteenth century American paintings and an abundant contemporary collection. Some of the most notable artists that can be admired down the halls of the museum include El Greco, Degas, Pissarro, Renoir and Monet. Though classic pieces have a strong presence, Joslyn Art Museum is renowned for its nineteenth century collections depicting Native American cultures. After perusing through the works of art indoors, frequenters often enjoy a stroll through the Sculpture Gardens. With the newly added Discovery Garden for younger crowds, Joslyn Art Museum can spark the imagination of all age ranges.

This is a nice art museum and best of all, general admission is free. Don't miss the Chihuly glass!

You don't have to be a fine arts enthusiast to see why visiting the Joslyn Art Museum is a must while in Omaha. General Admission is free, but that is just the icing on this artsy cake! Commonly hosting traveling exhibits like Andy Warhol and Renoir, with permanent pieces from greats like Jackson Pollock & Monet, the Joslyn Art Museum is a major source of pride for locals.

The spectacular architecture, accented by magnificent Chihuly sculptures, makes the Joslyn one of Omaha's most desirable wedding venues - I was one lucky bride!

Nebraska's best Art Museum. They have a nice collection of international and national artists. They often have nice traveling exhibits as well.

The museum is poorly managed. Their regular pieces are mundane (very average), and their "special" exhibits are rarely so. The museum only survives by a lack of competition in the area. Save your money/time, and do one of the other 10,000 (or so) things available in the Omaha-Council Bluffs metro area.

We have seen many wonderful traveling exhibits here and the permanent collections is beautiful to view over and over again.

Whenever I am in Omaha, I try to work in a trip to the Joslyn. It's such a wonderful treat to find such a first-class art gallery in the middle of Omaha!
