Free admission, nice collection. A small fee to see a traveling collection. Painting from several periods including a stellar Grant Wood ‘Stone City’. A good place to visit if you have a few hours in Omaha.

Rotating special exhibits to keep you coming back. Historic artifacts and art go along with the fine art displays. Excellent gift shop. Limited food service is tasty. Check out class schedule too.

Although it is a gem, it isn't somewhere we think to go of that often... We enjoy the beautiful artwork and that we get in free... It is a must see for all our locals!

Aren't all art museums (by default) "Five Stars"?? The Joslyn is excellent - well curated, designed...my only complaint is that the Pollack wasn't out. I'll be back in June. Love it. :)

I am a regular visitor of the Joslyn and cannot say enough about the ease of visit and the quality of artwork contained within. They also host outstanding traveling exhibits that should not be missed.

We visited Joslyn to see the transcontinental railroad spikes. Had the pleasure of enjoying other exhibts. The Joslyn is free, except for a few paid exhibitions. The architecture is beautiful and the building well maintained. Enjoy the outdoor sculpture gardens. Rest enjoying Chihuly permanent display....More
