First of all, thank you to Meijer for sponsoring free days on Tuesdays! We visited the museum to see the Rube Goldberg exhibit and learned so much about him and his life's work, which was well-represented in a fun, humorous and enjoyable way. Don't wait...More

I have been to the Grand Rapids Art Museum many times over the years. The exhibits they have are timely, unique, interesting. The price is always reasonable.

Wonderful collection, always fascinating exhibits. Winter Sunday afternoon concerts; GRAM on the Green for outdoor summer concerts...the list goes on! A must see whilst in GR!

We came to see the Rube Exhibit. It was really fun and interactive. Our toddlers weren't that excited- but our 5, 8, and 9 year old loved the dominoes.

The museum is smack in the middle of downtown Grand Rapids. The collection is well hung, represents many time periods and is easily navigated. The print exhibit was so well done, explaining all the different techniques with excellent art as examples. The Picasso prints were...More

The Museum is located in downtown Grand Rapids. Its architecture is attractive and functional. The museum has several nice permanent collections. Among those collections, a group of paintings by German Expressionists stands out. The museum also has a nice auditorium which is a very appropriate...More
