Always a pleasure.

The museum has some new and some permanent displays, so it's always interesting. Their gift shop has some fantastic things at a reasonable price.

I have seen visitors from far-flung places drop their jaws at the marvelous collection at the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art. Whether we have visiting guests from NYC, LA or Europe, we make a point of taking viistors to see not only the traveling exhibits, but the permanent collection. Grant Wood, Marvin Cone and Mauricio Lasansky are featured along with... More

The museum building itself is beautiful ... and the art collection and varied and beautifully displayed. We also enjoy the well stocked gift shop ... and getting fun art from the Art-O-Mat.

Really enjoyed viewing the exhibits and visiting the gift shop. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Only disappointment was not being about to see the American Gothic by Grant Wood. If you want to see that go to the Art Institute in Chicago.

This is a great museum that has a cross section of many different styles of art. The architecture in the building is wonderful! It is a great spot to bring kids to get them away from their screens and give them a chance to see "art in person."

Thought art museum would all be close to the same but found this one to be disappointing. Proved to be small with content and folks were not super friendly. No one to assist with asking of questions.

--and not just of Grant Wood. I was not impressed by him as an artist until I came here, learned more about him, his close study of Renaissance and German painters (Durer, Memling), his poverty. I appreciate him more now, I'll tell ya. Tip 1: See his studio! Makes his life come alive Tip 2: Come in the summer! Admission... More

The building itself if worth the trip. A wonderful job of joining the old and the new as you transition from one to the other. Their displays are of the highest quality in every art form. Easy access for handicapped people with a delightful gift shop. Certainly not a waste of time and a growing experience for your life's journey.
