With a mission of collecting, preserving, interpreting and eventually exhibiting the Chazen Museum of Art is home to a plethora of art. Art from all around the world can be found here, but it is the works of European artists like Thomas Gainsborough, Benjamin Williams Leader, and Eugène Boudin among others that dominate the space. Following European art is contemporary American art forms and even Japanese talent. Its free of cost admission is one of the best things about this attraction, since you get to art of this magnitude at absolutely zero cost!

Chazen Museum Of Art Reviews & Ratings
I have been to the Chazen many times to see the free art. They have great rotating collections and visiting artists throughout the year. They do give tours for groups as well. I have been on one of their tours. I highly suggest that you take a tour. The guides are very knowledgeable and will ask if the group wants to see anything in particular. I think the tour took about an hour from start to finish. One of the guys on my tour asked a lot of questions and the tour guide was able to keep up with him even! I was super impressed. The museum is always very clean and well organized. The variety of art in the museum is very diverse. There seems to be a little bit of everything for everyone. It's a great place to take the kids also.
An oasis near the heart of the campus quite close to the memorial union and waterfront. The museum is open and airy. There are several donated collections here and most of what i saw was from the modern era. When turning a corner into a gallery there was always a work that immediately captured my attention. A pleasing discovery and i regretted leaving after only an hour.
The Chazen Museum of Art is quite spectacular and truly more amazing than a visit to Starbucks. Go there for an entire week sometime. It's incredible and the art is character building and expressive in a way that is impressive.
You can count on really thoughtful curatorial decisions on every visit to the Chazen, drawing on an excellent permanent collection and great traveling exhibitions. I always find something new and fascinating among old favorites.
Love this place and you can't beat the price. It is free and there is no way you will see it all in one day. Convenient parking for being downtown and a great place to go!
