Wonderful Art

The art here is always changing. Never a dull moment when you visit here. The museum is very open and bright. Elevator or stairs to upper floors.

The GR Art Museum is a worthwhile place for an hour or so. It's located downtown near lots of parking garages and lots. It has a lot of well known artists less known pieces and regularly features changing exhibits that are usually quite good. It has a decent gift shop and cafe.

We've been members of the Grand Rapids Art Museum since it relocated to its new location. Absolutely wonderful place to visit, nice snack shop, great gift shop, and wonderful art. Right in the heart of Grand Rapids' thriving downtown.

If you know anything about the work of these individuals, it's very interesting to see these pieces in order to widen the... More

Whether it is drawing or sculpture, this museum is worth it. Time well spent. The history in the museum makes you want to research more about the artist. It is spacious, well it so that you can truly enjoy the artist work.
