The Nic does a great job of finding exhibitors and sharing commentary about the different works of art. The museum is kid-friendly and routinely exhibits high school art work as well as professional work. On Wednesday evenings in the summer there is free music outside and Tuesdays feature a farmer's market. The Nicolaysen is a great place to visit in... More

I'd have to say they had an overabundance of "modern" art. Of course art is completely subjective but a lot of that type of thing doesn't pique my interest. They did have some pieces that were fantastic so it's definitely worth paying a visit.

It was great to see lithographs by Picasso & Matisse in their European Masters room. Lots of regional and nationally-known artists, and their major exhibit space is enormous! Great curator. Nice lobby and shop.

A very nice place to just relax and look at all of the art. They even have a section for children to keep them busy and try making something fun.

This place has an excellent curator who is also a fine artist. They have lots of western based art and also contemporary displays. Allow 1 to 2 hours.

I would highly recommend the "Nic". We're members, and attend opening receptions, and enjoy the art. In the summertime, there are free folk-type concerts behind the museum on Wednesday nights at 5:30 p.m. (bring your chair or blanket). It's not a large museum, but there is always something new and interesting. Reasonable prices; though I don't know exactly since we... More

The "NIC" is always good value. Almost always free and displays are refreshed in a timely manner. A nice attraction for downtown activities.

They call it "The Nic." Modern and nicely done. On the day I visited, two distinguished artists were featured. For a $5 fee, this museum/gallery (The Nic) is well worth it. Nice gift store.

I love the Nic! Wish they were bigger and had even more space for displays and even more programs for kids. It is a Casper jewel.
