Trip Advisor Impressive
Sep 30, 2014 by: Cynmos from Overland Park, Kansas
Even though much of the museum was closed for renovations thee was still so much to see it took us over 3 hours. The Cone Collection is eclectic and the information about the sisters is fascinating. The contemporary section had some hits and some misses but still worth seeing. The Mosaics surrounding the courtyard are incredible. I always enjoy the masters and this collection is superb. To add to the pleasure - there is no admission fee though I encourage visitors to make a donation.

Trip Advisor A gem of a collection

Although part of the museum was closed, the fabulous Cone sisters collection of art was well worth the trip from DC. Matisse, Cezanne and Picasso are the big names here. Plus there is a Picasso painting from the same year as the "Family of the Saltembanques" found in the National Gallery in DC which makes this a good pairing. They have a good modern collection including a large Warhol room that includes many of his later paintings including one of the "Pee" paintings, a Rorschach test painting and a "Last Supper" screen painting. Fun stuff. Awesome Guston, Rushfeldt and Alice Neal as well. Their sculpture garden is a beautiful setting for a variety of modern pieces and their restaurant "Gertrude" looked very tempting (but I couldn't convince my colleagues to stay). This museum had the feel of the National Gallery in DC on the outside, but its much smaller and very much worth the visit.

Trip Advisor Lovely, not-too-big museum

Terrific paintings in the core Cone Collection (impressionists, Picassos). Good and not-too-pricey cafe in the very nice sculpture garden. Best of all, this lovely collection has free admission!

Trip Advisor Loved the variety

I arrived at the front door to find it was closed, but thank goodness I returned the next day. The collections are so diverse, it was superb. I loved the size, as it is not overwhelming and exhausting. The floor plan is brilliant.

Brunch at Gertrudes was a high point of our weekend stay. Good food, excellent service. The crab cakes are not to be missed!
