Joslyn Art Museum - Review
Joslyn Art Museum is a picturesque principal fine arts museum in Omaha and is renowned for its great collection and management. The museum was opened in the year 1931 because of the initiative that was taken up by Sarah H. Joslyn in the loving memory of her husband. Some of the best pieces in the museum include art of the legendary Paolo Veronese and El Greco, Titian. They also have great arts from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

Joslyn Art Museum, Omaha Reviews
The museum is free and wonderful. It's well laid out and includes art pieces from Monet and Vibert. The museum is organized in a way to show a steady progression in art styles, and more importantly, shows the American interpretation of a lot of the art styles as they were emerging from Europe. The result is a fascinating parallel study of styles and times in two distinct cultures and locations (my favorite are the displays of impressionist art showing a difference in subject, but largely maintaining the style).
Love this museum!!! Used to get over there all the time Last time I went I waved to my good buddy Randy In time I'm sure this museum will be good No alternative energy, I want oil Good job guys Or is it? I love this museum Love the museum I do not Most horrible museum I have ever seen Usually I don't go there Such a dirty, unclean, run down place Every time I go there, all I see is oil propaganda Unless something is changed, don't go here Museum is nothing compared to the first letter in each sentence
The kids are enjoying museums. Joslyn was interesting and the kids enjoyed both the art and the gift shop. There is a piece of digital artwork of a tree going through all four seasons. The kids were mesmerized by that for over ten minutes.
Half of the museum was closed for renovations which left very little to see. This would have been OK considering the free admission had some of the staff not been so rude to us. My elderly mother who cannot see very well leaned in to look at a painting in better detail (nowhere close to touching it) and a young woman working there rudely yelled at her to back away from the paining and to stay three feet away. She then proceeded to follow us around for the rest of our time there as if we weren't to be trusted to be left alone. Won't be back here.
Excellent art museum in downtown Omaha. Free wheel chairs or scooters if needed. Nice cafe. Spacious. Maybe a bit too much pink marble stonework for "artitecture."
