With a collection of contemporarily aquired art dating back to the 1800s, the Albright-Knox is one of America's best museums in a mid-sized town.

Beautiful museum with a fine collection of classic and modern art. - van Gogh, Mark Rothko, among others. There was an excellent exhibition of art by local high school students when I visited too. And the A/K Cafe is quite good.
