The grounds surounding the museum are meticoulously kept. It is not uncommon to see people lounging in the park like setting, cycling or roller blading by on Kelly Drive or even running up the front steps like Sylvester Stalone in the movie Rocky.
Make sure you give yourself a full day to see the museum, inside and out; it will be time well spent.
Museum Admission is $10 for adults, $7 for students with valid ID and
senior citizens. For the budget minded taveler it is pay as you wish on
Sundays and members are always free.

As we didn't have much time so we just focused on the European and modern art sections. We saw many famous paintings that we had previously viewed in art books. I enjoyed Auguste Renoir's paintings whereas my husband was captivated by the Picasso's. This was the first time I saw a real Andy Warhol.
I suggest taking the public tours offered, which you can check from the flier for "What is happening Today." I definitely would like to visit the museum again as there is so much to see.

The museum itself holds some wonderful treasures including sculpture from Picasso and Rodin. There is a fabulous collection of Pissaros with several lovely Monet's and Renoir's. Take several hours and explore the museum. If you are there in the summer it is a great place to be in the afternoon! Also there is an excellent view from the back side of the museum of the river.

The museum's special exhibitions are world class. The most recent being portraits by Van Gogh. The art museum is affiliated with the Rodin museum across the street, containing "The Thinker" (not the original).
Sundays are free and a good day to bring the family.

You'll find everything from local artists (Andrew Wyeth being one of the most notable) to Van Gogh and Picasso, among the many, many rooms of the Museum. My favorite is the Far East Ancient Art Exhibit.
