Free admission and beautiful exhibit space. There was a yoga class going on near the lobby. The cafe is over-priced. Parts of the museum were closed for renovation.

The Blanton exhibits are so much fun to view. I get surprised by their daring presentations. They have an extensive permanent collection which is always fun to visit often and the new artists they bring in are exciting and refreshing to view and enjoy.

The permanent exhibitions are closed and the temporary ones are not impressive enough to have a charge. The staff does tell you that the main floors are closed before you buy a ticket but ....don't bother visiting its not worth it.

A nice Museum of Art but two whole floors closed for renovations made for a short visit. I think given this fact, the admission should have been reduced accordingly.

The artwork was beautiful. There were three rooms, two of which were strictly war/western paper and pen drawings, which was rather disappointing. I was looking forward to the more contemporary and sculpture art which was not featured, and won't be until February 2017 as renovations...More

Even though the second floor was closed there was a Xu Bing exhibit that was fascinating. The Goya exhibit was equally interesting.

We received several admissions discounts. Staff was friendly. The 2 exhibits which were available to view were interesting and beautiful. Limited museum visit because of the renovations taking place on the second level. I would come back after the renovations in 2017. If it wasn't...More
