We are frequent visitors to the Butler Museum of American Art. New exhibits are always exciting but the permanent collection is just as wonderful to experience. Docents are very knowledgeable and friendly. Field trips from local schools are a must and catering/events are fantastic.

This little gem was fantastic! I loved every square inch of this place. The museum has a beautiful selection of art and some very impressive collections! You must see Abraham Lincoln when you visit. I will be making this an annual trip from now on!

I have visited here with a date to view the collection and I was surprised at how diverse the collection is. Everything from historic oils to very interesting and eclectic sculptures. A must see in downtown Youngstown Ohio.

The Butler has the largest collection of American art. Admission is free. There is a children's section, a gift shop and a little coffee shop. I always enjoy my visits there

This is a priceless landmark of Youngstown. It's beautiful to see the art, American Art, and realize all that we have that makes us proud. There are many permanent works and lots of new and changing collections. A must see!

an amazing building houses a huge spectrum of American art, from old art focusing on American Indians to exciting new art in technology. Allow at least 90 minutes to stroll through the many galleries. don't miss the "Crack the Whip." This Sunday the Polish Arts has a special tea to award scholarships.

This museum has works by great artists: Rockwell, O'Keeffe, Hopper, and it even has a Van Gogh, although it might be just on loan. I absolutely love this museum!
