A beautiful February day in Omaha!

We just toured the free portion of the museum and enjoyed it very much. It is certainly worth a trip. You can spend as much, or as little, time as you want - amazing!

We stopped to take pictures on the stairs of the Joslyn and a security guard came out and advised us that we needed a permit and had to pay to take pictures in front of the museum.

We stopped by for a quick trip to the museum. We only had an hour. For the hour quick walk through we saw beautiful paintings. The building it self is an amazing work of art. I loved it!! I will visit again sometime when I can spend the day.

How large is the Joslyn Art Museum in Omaha, Nebraska? Not as large as the Louvre in Paris or the National Gallery in London. But the galleries, theater and cafe housed in the original 1931 art deco building and the modern, 58,000-square foot addition designed by Norman Foster makes it the largest and principal fine arts museum in Nebraska.

They have an interactive family area and children's back pack tours along with computers for kids to play on. For the back pack tours. Ask at the front desk and you will be guided to the desk to check out your pack. Follow the directions with your children for a fun introduction to art.
