Recommend any art lover pay the mandatory visit if for no other reason than to view the several important treasures in the permanent collection. A little on the small side. Not much diversification into sculpture, artifacts. It is what it is.

Was not expecting such a phenomenal museum! Well known artists such as Picasso, Van Gogh, Gauguin. The museum is an easy walk and can be done in a few good hours. Helpful staff, not expensive, nice cafe. Recommend it if you’re in Buffalo!
