Joslyn Art Museum Reviews & Ratings

  • The whole family admired the beautiful art work on display. The blown glass exhibits are enormous! They are beautiful, eye catching pieces on both ends of the lobby. I loved the pottery collection as well. The boys thought the Art of Seating exhibit was interesting. Two thumbs up from the whole family.

  • Great museum that's ruined by the staff that follow you around and tell you to step back from the displays. I was telling my two sons about the art and pointing out details. A staff member approached and told me to step back because the camera angles looked like I was touching it. I apologized and we moved on. Less than 10 minutes later another staff approached us and told us not to "point" at the paintings because it could be taken as us trying to touch. Getting frustrated we moved on. The next room contained an amazing chest of drawers in figured walnut. I am a woodworker and excitedly began to point out details to my sons. For the third time a staff member approached and told me that I need to step back from the art. "You need to move back at least a foot...actually more like two feet. You need to maintain at least two feet from the displays". After that we just kinda walked through the rest and then left.

  • The building from the inside is very nice. The art itself is interested but could not enjoy it because of the staff. We felt unwelcome and creeped out by the guy following us. The guy is an older is gentleman about 6 feet 260. He was wearing a suit and a name tag. We went there because my daughter loves art and insisted on going to the museum. We also took our four year old son. The kids didn’t touch anything. My son has a speech delay and he was making noises when the guy showed up. We went to other exhibitions and the guys was there staring at us like he wanted us to leave the museum. At one pint I walked towards him and he walked the opposite way. The visit was unpleasant. I felt frustrated, misjudge, and scared. It was an uncomfortable experience. I understand that the pieces are valuable and quiet adults are more welcomed. However, I believe that we need to teach children to love and appreciate art.

  • Beautiful exhibit, well worth the time to visit. Enjoyed the lay out and descriptions. Quite and minimal people which is the way I prefer it. Only negative is that we were approached by someone from a museum staff member who told us we were looking to closely at the painting, I understand but also we are regular visitors of galleries and this is the first time we have ever been 'scolded' for looking to closely

  • Beautiful installation from the Joslyn family. Worth paying for their premium exhibit when you go there. They are non-profit if I remember correctly. Being an art museum the last time we went their premium exhibit was the art of seating. Truly amazing and would return to any other premiums based upon this one.
