Was in Omaha on a rainy day and spent some time here - nice exhibits and it's free! Building is a must see on its own.

When Brian Kelly’s UNL architecture students want to see a world-class building, he says they road-trip to Kansas City, Minneapolis or Chicago. In the future, I will do the same for seeing world-class art. Better yet, travel to Dallas, NYC, London, or Copenhagen if you...More

Admission to Joslyn is FREE, with a few special exceptions (traveling exhibits), and you can opt out of those exhibits and take the time to experience all the others. The building itself is gorgeous, inside and out, with a lovely exhibit outside. The colorful Chihuly...More

We loved the art galleries and the architecture of this museum. I'm a photography enthusiast and I could have spent the whole day in the museum taking photos. Everyone was very nice and there weren't a lot of restrictions.

When I moved (back) to Omaha from Washington, D.C., I was desperately missing "my" Smithsonian Museums. As a long-term D.C., resident, I got my weekly art fix on most Fridays throughout the years strolling among the 10—always FREE— Smithsonian Museum buildings majestically gracing both sides...More

There were many really interesting exhibits within the museum, and it was easy to navigate throughout the rooms without getting lost. There was also a sculpture garden outside. Allow a couple of hours if you can.
