We did not know what to expect when we visited this museum, but thoroughly enjoyed our time spent there. While not overwhelmed with "major works of major artists" there was a good range of interesting work and some special displays that were particularly strong.

large and well laid out venue. Some of the exhibits were very interesting, but I was disappointed with the Andy Warhol exhibit. There was an audio-visual exhibit that was very good, but it was way too loud so we didn't stay to watch it in...More

There was a lot of art going on in Grand Rapids both in the museum and in the actual streets so it was probably a great month to go in October - Everything I saw was awe inspiring and I would definitely recommend this attraction...More

We were here to see the Art Prize exhibits, so I'm not sure what the museum would be at other times, but it has a nice layout and the Art Prize exhibits were very good.

Stopped into the museum to see the Art Prize entries but enjoyed our time looking at the other exhibits as well. Bonus - it was free during Art Prize!

This is a Leed certified building. Beautiful. This museum has both their own exhibits and changing, ongoing exhibits. It is a sweet museum, amazing really what a little place like Grand Rapids, Michigan can offer.

A first class museum for a city this size. Rube Goldberg exhibit was great. And the Thursday night we dropped by, it was free. Thank you Meijer.

Stopped in on a Free Tuesday to see the Rube Goldberg display, well worth the time, only about a week left so don't miss it.

We were not impressed by this art museum. It was a quick visit for us. If we had known there was a free day we would have waited. The building is grand and I'm sure they have some very expensive works by the masters. However...More
