He Joslyn has a fun eclectic collection with modern old masters and some truly ancient works too. The building is beautiful and so are the grounds. And it is free and parking is free too. I highly recommend it.

Was in Omaha on a rainy day and spent some time here - nice exhibits and it's free! Building is a must see on its own.

When Brian Kelly’s UNL architecture students want to see a world-class building, he says they road-trip to Kansas City, Minneapolis or Chicago. In the future, I will do the same for seeing world-class art. Better yet, travel to Dallas, NYC, London, or Copenhagen if you...More

This museum is packed with beautiful artwork. Some of it is ancient, some of it is new and lots in between. The large Chihuly art piece in the entrance is impressive by itself and certainly worth the price of admission, which is free! Don't miss...More

I came specifically to see the Union Pacific exhibit featuring the spikes used to complete the transcontinental railway. This is the first time the three existing spikes have been reunited since the completion of the major project. Great historical photos accompanied this exhibit. It has...More

We loved the art galleries and the architecture of this museum. I'm a photography enthusiast and I could have spent the whole day in the museum taking photos. Everyone was very nice and there weren't a lot of restrictions.

When I moved (back) to Omaha from Washington, D.C., I was desperately missing "my" Smithsonian Museums. As a long-term D.C., resident, I got my weekly art fix on most Fridays throughout the years strolling among the 10—always FREE— Smithsonian Museum buildings majestically gracing both sides...More
