Fodor's Review

Following a five-year, $33 million renovation project (completed in 2015), the nation's oldest public art museum now has a fresh face. The first American museum to acquire works by Salvador Dalí and Italian Renaissance artist Caravaggio, it houses more than 50,000 artworks and artifacts spanning 5,000 years, along with 7,000 items documenting African-American history and culture in partnership with the Amistad Foundation. Particularly impressive are the museum's baroque, Impressionist, and Hudson River School collections.
