“A jewel of a museum in Odessa”

Ellen Noel Art Museum
Ranked #4 of 20 things to do in Odessa
Attraction details
Reviewed 4 June 2014

For a small art museum the Ellen Noel Art Museum is a classy place. They make sure to provide a wide selection of collections to show. The Icon exhibit has been a wonderful one with some of the best examples of that art! It's free and open to the public and is a welcome sight to artists out here. If you haven't visited the museum in a while then go and treat yourself to the wonderful art on display there. You'll be glade you did.

I went a field trip with my 4th grade students in October of 2013, but was just there 4/12 for the native flower and plant sale. It's a beautiful museum and lots of wonderful information.

This is one of the best museums in Odessa. The staff offers great activities for children which makes them want to visit museums more often. My nieces attend the monthly art sessions and they love them. They are always excited to go and even more impressed with the activites once they return. As a schoolteacher, my district offers a yearly trip to the Ellen Noel Art Museum and I am always satisfied with the activities and the displays. A wonderful place for a weekend family outing!

For 2013, The Ellen Noёl Art Museum is an official Smithsonian Affiliate, one of only two art museums in the state of Texas to have this status. The Ellen Noel has always had excellent exhibitions.

Our favorite part visiting there is always The Sensory Garden. In 1998 the museum made a garden completely accessible and "user friendly" to visually and physically challenged visitors through design consultation with the Texas Commission for the Blind, the County Extension Service, and Permian Basin Master Gardeners. It's a beautiful and calming shady place.
