If you’re in a wheelchair, good luck getting in. The entrance by the handicap parking space has four steps. Love the new exhibit wing, you can use the elevator to get there. But they don’t make it easy to get inside in the first place.

My wife would have given this a higher rating. She wandered, I yawned. I've seen too many of these. Additionally, Lange exhibit was great; other American masters were "traveling." That was disappointing.

We went to Reynolda for the Frederic Church exhibition, and also toured the furnished rooms. This is a very nice "Old House Museum" with a Belle Epoch cum Fin-de-Siecle flair. The galleries are well set up and the homes' rooms have nearly as many artworks....More

I visited Reynolda house for the Georgia O'Keefe exhibit, but would definitely recommend this place any time of year. The exhibit far exceeded my expectations. Definitely purchase tickets to popular exhibits in advance.

The house is very large and quite luxurious, with basement bowling alley, billiard room, squash court, ping pong room, large pool. Vast outside porch and large gardens. Artwork is rather "stale" with few, if any important pieces. The pipe organ, in the house, is a...More
