So fun and informative. Really enjoyed it.
There was a special exhibit when we toured and it was fascinating. The permanent exhibits also are fine and well worth your time.
A Little Gem - Better then the Schnitzer in Eugene
This is a lovely little museum which is a delight to walk through. If you are looking for old world masters be warned that this is not the National Gallery in Washington DC... the do have a small gallery of masters but no extensive display of impressionists, or renaissance masters. Rather this is a well presented collection of different art which becomes a satisfying journey away from the current "Trumpian" disgust. There is something for everyone. Even though my wife and I have visited many European national galleries we still find this museum to be very satisfying, and visit two or three times a year. Well worth the visit. Watch for special exhibits to tailor your trip to your own tastes.
A gem of Salem
Really well presented . Friendly helpful staff. The exhibitions are beautifully curated and presented.
It's All Art To Me
I had the good fortune to find another reason to make another trip to the museum has 2 floors and has an elevator if the stairs won't do. As always we were warmly created and I brought a first timer. She had never been. She is a bit of an artist herself. The slot machine art of the first floor made me laugh. Since art should make you feel something a laugh was great. They art is changed from time to time so I like to go 4 or 5 times a year. The native center seems unchanged but I also seem to see new things each time a go. I love the place. If you like ever changing art this place is for you, your friends and family.
I have been visiting the museum since it opened. Their shows and exhibits are always interesting. One of Salem, Oregon's bright spots!
