“Notable, but just barely”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

To say that this is Utah's second finest art museum is certainly faint praise indeed.
The building itself is a fine, modern structure. And, however small and limited its collection, the admission is free, and the travelling exhibits which stop here offer surprising views into some otherwise unexplored areas. The museum's collection of American art, while not as large as it should be, still merits some attention.

“Well Worth Finding”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

BYU is not laid out on the Mormon grid. So finding this little gem of an art museum can be tricky. However once you do, you'll find a great gallery. Displays are subject to Mormon sensibilities. One year, they locked two Rodin sculptures in the basement because they felt they were "obscene."

“BYU Museum of Art”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

A very large, spacious, and beautiful museum! My favorite exhibit was the 'Cut! Costume and the Cinema.' Costumes from famous movies, all in the renaissance style, were exhibited. The movies I enjoyed seeing the costumes from were; 'Ever After,' 'The Pirates of the Carribean,' and 'The Duchess.' They were all so beautiful and amazing.

“worth the visit”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

I had a small amount of time to visit the MOA and wanted to see their special exhibit. I reserved tickets online but was unable to print them. The staff were very friendly and helpful and just looked up my information for entrance. The exhibit was fantastic and it is obvious that great care is put into making the MOA a great resource for the community.
