Joslyn is synonymous with art, a fantastic venue, weddings, a theater, fountains, and of course the incredible paintings. I have been to Italy and Joslyn is as beautiful as any museum I went to in Florence. There is no 'David' here, but lots of great art with many special showings on loan. When you are wondering what to do on... More

Loved visiting Joselyn! Beautiful facility and wonderfully displayed exhibits. If you are looking for a calm, quiet experience, take in Joselyn. A nice change of pace from the other busy attractions in Omaha (I.e. Zoo, Old Market, etc).

This art museum is wonderful. Beautiful pieces of art and a wonderful special exhibit, "Wild Spaces, Open Season". Many paintings by American Impressionist. Their European exhibit was closed due to remodeling, however, it reopens sometime in May. It's definitely worth another visit.

Quite a few exhibits off display but still saw some nice pieces. Outside is a great walking place. Friendly staff and volunteers. Next time I'll take a guided tour. Well worth the hour or two.

The Joslyn art Museum is the perfect choice for a two- or three-hour visit. Admission is free, and the museum is small and manageable. The Native American art and artifacts are excellent, and the collection of American paintings is also quite good, with a few gems by master painters and other works by notable second-tier artists. (The European collection was... More

Where else in middle America can you find Monets, Manets, Rembrandts, Van Goghs, Bierstadts, ancient artifacts, Bodmers, a fantastic structure, and an interesting sculpture garden? The new addition and the Chilhouly glass sculptures just add to the interest. Spend at least 2 hours here; it's well worth it!

In town for business, made sure to stop by the Joslyn. Too notch staff - welcoming, friendly. There was a school group touring during my visit but the gallery guide / chaperones were terrific. The students were clearly engaged. There's also a really fun hands on gallery geared toward families and drop in visitors with neat exhibits and interactive connected... More

We found this via TripAdvisor recommendations and are so glad we stopped! We went to Nebraska for a wedding and we had an afternoon to fill. This Art Deco building is gorgeous. We enjoyed lunch in the cafe. Explored the American West collection and loved the Chihuly on display that was two stories tall. The gift shop was really nice,... More

The design of the museum is wonderful with stone from various American places. If you get a chance see the founder's room, it is the only room in the place to use wood extensively and it's well done. A large part of the museum was closed and will be until late May but what remained was worth your time, The... More
